Vietnam War Reenactors

On the weekends, all over the world, Vietnam War reenactors can be found staging mock battles and bringing to life the stories of those who fought in Vietnam. These passionate individuals go above and beyond simply donning historical uniforms; they recreate the sights, sounds, and smells of life on the battlefields of Vietnam. For many reenactors, this is more than just a hobby – it’s a way to preserve history and keep the memories of those who fought alive. If you’re interested in learning more about Vietnam War reenacting, or if you’d like to take part in one of these events yourself, then find a unit and get started now!

If you're interested in joining a Vietnam War reenactment group, our directory of units is a great place to start. You can also check with your local historical society or veterans' organization. Once you've found a few potential groups, try attending one of their events as a spectator. This will give you a chance to see what they do and how they operate. Most importantly, it will allow you to get a feel for whether or not the group is a good fit for you. When you're ready to join, most groups will require that you fill out an application and go through an orientation process. After that, you'll be able to participate in all of the group's activities.

If you are looking for a reenactment to attend, be sure to check out our event listings. 

If looking to dive into Vietnam reenacting, the number one piece of advice is to speak to a unit before making purchases. Many units have loaner gear or special requirements. Check out our article How to Join a Reenactment Group.

Units portraying the Vietnam War aren't nearly as prolific as World War 2 or Civil War impressions. Finding other reenactors might take some creativity and searching in various social media channels. Even better, why not start your own!
