What We've Been up to Recently...

Why We Reenact?

Here at Dog Company, we are driven by a single goal; to make history come alive for our members and the public. Started in 2007 as a way for our members to outreach with veterans, we have grown into a premier WWII Infantry Unit in the Midwest. In 2014, we were awarded the outstanding unit commendation at D-Day Ohio and were recently selected to showcase the release of the Memphis Belle at the Air Force National Museum. We are also a founding unit of the Ohio Historical Infantry Organization.

Under Lt. Col. Max F. Schneider, the Fifth Ranger Battalion assaulted Omaha Beach on D-Day. Formed at Camp Forrest, Tennessee, 1 September 1943, the battalion arrived in Britain in January 1944. On the morning of 6 June 1944 it landed with the 116th Infantry Regiment of the Twenty-ninth Division and, with elements of the Second Ranger Battalion, was instrumental in the advance inland. In fact, Ranger history was made when the Twenty-ninth Division’s assistant commander, Brig. Gen. Norman Cota, turned to Schneider and ordered, ‘‘Rangers, lead the way off this beach!’’ Like the Second Battalion, the Fifth participated in the Normandy, northern France, Ardennes-Alsace, and Rhineland campaigns.
