World War II re-enactors will participate in D-Day commemoration events Friday and Saturday at Forbes Field's Kansas National Guard Museum. The event makes up this year's annual Heartland Military Days at the museum.

Re-enactors will show what life was like for German and American forces at encampments and battle. Battles will be re-enacted at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday.

On display Saturday will be a Sherman tank and with it will be a World War II tank veteran. There will be many other displays of World War II equipment and military vehicles.

The event is free to the public.
