WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- A local group shows the history of our country's wars through the eyes of soldiers spanning the timeline.

Members of the All-American Honor Guard are setting up camp at Ridgeview Park, getting ready for this year's U.S. Military History Weekend.

They're putting up their tents, gathering their firewood and getting ready to camp out Friday night. Saturday and Sunday they'll be in full costume, showing what it was like to be a soldier in our country's wars going back to the American Revolution.

They'll also demonstrate some of the weapons and artillery used and have military vehicles from different wars.
.
All-American Honor Guard President Alan Alterman said it's important to show what our soldiers have gone through over the years.

"A lot of people don't realize the trials and tribulations and sacrifices that men have made and women have made in serving the country," said Alterman.

You can check it out for yourself Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Ridgeview Park.
