Students Involved in Military Tributes, Parades and Events – Over the Years…

Service of Supply is not just a business.  It’s a personal collection, a way to honor our nation’s military veterans, and a vehicle for getting students involved in our patriotic history.  Bryan Dibble collects uniforms of all eras and puts them to use for Veterans Day, demonstrations, living history displays, and much more.  Students from our city eagerly volunteer to represent the military men and women of the past.  Our group is called SERVE – Students Engaged in Re-creating Veteran’s Experiences.  SERVE teaches students about the period of time they are representing.  We meet veterans at the VFW and learn more about what they experienced in the service.  Students who are wearing uniforms also are called upon to teach others, especially younger kids, what that uniform represents and who the people were called up to serve at that time in American history.  Since the late 1990s, hundreds of students have worn the uniforms and “walked a step in their shoes.”

Rifle Grenade Tubes back in stock, as well as a new “Three Pack” of rubber hand grenades

We’re getting things finished up that we’re on the back burner for too long. We have been cranking out our classic rubber hand grenades. If you don’t know about these, they have a ribbon embedded in the bottom that you pull out so when you throw it at the enemy you can find it again. This is a very unique product in the reenacting game. We have both American frag grenades and British Mills Bombs. We have a hard time keeping these in stock, but we build two more molds, and have streamlined the process. Now you can get a great deal on a three-pack of these great reenacting grenades. Another thing we’ve been out of a while are the cardboard rifle grenade tubes. These are the best copy that can be made using existing materials. They are 3″ in diameter, with added tubing in the core for thickness. The come with brown paper tape that was used to seal the lids on. Makes them very authentic. Hopefully all your reenacting events are awesome this summer! Feel free to use our site to post messages about upcoming events, there is a lot of WWII traffic that could benefit with information. -Bryan SOS
