Storming the beach at Solomons

Be there when soldiers storm the beach at Solomons this weekend, re-creating a military exercise on the site of the World War II Amphibious Training Base for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps.

Board the John W. Brown Liberty Ship, the last operational troopship of WWII, and watch the troops assemble on deck to check their gear before scrambling down nets into a landing craft that takes them to the beach. Or witness the re-enactment from the shore.

Also scheduled is a fly-by of the original Marine Corps World War II Corsair F4U-4 fighter plane.

A dinner dance and stage show is planned after Saturday's re-enactment. The event is sponsored by the Calvert Marine Museum, Project Liberty Ship and the U.S. Marine Corps Historical Company.

Board the John W. Brown at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Navy Recreation Center. Tickets are $30. Admission is free to watch the re-enactment from the beach. Dinner dance tickets are $40. Call 410-326-2042.
