Able Company was formed in 2009 and is a Texas based living history unit. The unit uses a variety of vintage and accurately reproduced uniforms, equipment, and weapons to depict the lives of WWII Paratroopers. Able Company members take great pride in the original equipment they have meticulously restored which includes a variety of weapons, radios, vehicles, and other equipment.
Members of the unit experience history as they wear the same uniforms and equipment as Able Company troopers did during WWII. Unit members conduct research to increase their knowledge and practice tasks paratroopers performed during WWII. These types of activities permit unit members to better understand the lives of the men they portray and appreciate their contributions to the defeat of the Axis Powers in WWII.
Able Company participates in living history, public displays, recreated battles, parades, and other community events across Texas and the surrounding states. Often these events include other living history units as well as WWII era trucks, armored vehicles, tanks, and combat aircraft.
Able Company is a proud member of the WWII Airborne Living History Association (WWII ALHA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit historical society, that is dedicated to educating the public and preserving the heritage and legacy of the WWII airborne soldier. The WWII ALHA supports education through immersive living history events where visitors are surrounded with the sights, sounds, and smells encountered by the WWII airborne solider. If you wish to support both Able Company and the WWII ALHA, please feel free to make a donation. All donations are tax deducable.
