"C" Company, 27th Regt.
25th Infantry Division, U.S. Army
"WOLFHOUNDS" in VIETNAM, 1966 to 1971
RULES FOR RE-ENACTING
The less than comprehensive, yet important, quick guide for reenacting a G.I. in Vietnam.
The 27th Regiment Reenactor’s goals are to be as authentic as possible with the
minimal costs, inconvenience, and mistakes regarding our equipment, food, clothing, and
mannerisms/dialogues.  The reward for this hard work is having a good time and
experiencing the “moment in time�.
HERE ARE THE RULES FOR AUTHENTIC PLAY
1.  Arrive in uniform or period civilian attire, or if not – Get in uniform ASAP
2.  Pre-prepare your gear, clothes, and foodstuffs, pack them so that they are accessible
when you arrive.  HINT: Take a day off from work, ARRIVE EARLY!
3.  Use appropriate canvas duffel bags, or other suitable container to stow your gear &
uniforms.  NO PLASTIC BOXES, NO PLASTIC HANGERS.
4.  Have the correct bedding for camp: wool blankets or a G.I. cold weather sleeping bag.
5.  When arriving to an event, get yourself/bedding/gear done right away; that means set
up your tent, gear, and get in uniform!  When notified of an event that goes active at
arrival; put on your rucksack, sling your rifle; be ready for the road march to the camp!
6.  Uniforms:  Only authorized clothing, socks, boots, gloves, coats, undershirts/shirts, and
if possible – underwear (they make repro long johns).
7.  NO POST-1970's JEWELRY, WRISTWATCHES, OR EYEGLASSES!
8.  Food must be wrapped in period appropriate containers - think C-ration cans!
9. No modern snacks, gatorade/punch must be in period container, Coca-Cola/Pepsi in
bottles is Ok.  SODAS should be in limited quantities, WATER stowed in water cans &
plain wrapped 2 gallon jugs is the preferred drink!  All brands of beers and wines are Ok
for after-battle hours at night (exception: 24-hour scenarios).
11. When in a field event or in camp, stay in character throughout.  Practice your 60's G.
I. slang; You’re re-enacting an American Soldier!
12. Act like a soldier, LEARN your commands, know the basic skills of a soldier.
13.  Learn the nomenclature of your weapon and how to field strip and operate it!
14.  We will have a period lantern or candle burning in the camp.  It is called the â
€œSMOKING LAMPâ€� (authentic lamp).  When it is lit it means NO FARB
ALLOWED!
15.  FINALLY, come out to the battle with a “can-doâ€� attitude, make the best time
of it!
