OLD BEDFORD VILLAGE, BEDFORD COUNTY - Old Bedford Village is going back in time to the 60s this weekend.
Vietnam reenactors and veterans are on hand to tell and show people just what it was like.
Organizers say the younger generations aren't too familiar with what happened in Vietnam and this is a great opportunity for them to interact with veterans.
And it also helps veterans talk about their experiences.

"When we first started doing this 7, 8 years ago, it was hard for them,” said Sergeant Thomas Gray, President GPMPA. “But now, it's more accepted because they see that we're out here actually honoring them. So it's a little bit of a release for them. We get positive feedback."
The reenactment continues tomorrow at Old Bedford Village.
