Sunday concluded the 10th Annual All-American Military weekend.

The two-day event provides exhibits, reenactments, presentations and weapon demonstrations for the public.

Many volunteer to bring a true testament of history to the public.

"Our schools aren't going and doing the job of education and there is an awful lot of revisionist history out there. So the veterans that actually did participate need to give an unbiased viewpoint of what transpired during that period," Vietnam veteran Fred Behrens said.

All money raised through the weekend event goes to students studying education, and funds programs for disabled and hospitalized veterans.
