Over Labor Day weekend, Waynesboro is hosting a unique event to honor America's past and those in the service.

Set-up is going on Friday for the All-American Honor Guard's 18th annual military living history event. On Saturday and Sunday you can see members dressed in traditional military uniforms all the way from Jamestown to the present.    

The volunteers will showcase firing demonstrations throughout the day. They will be equipped with small arms and even a cannon.

"The idea is to help educate the public and to honor those who've served," said Alan Alterman, secretary of All-American Honor Guard.

The event is free and open to the public. You can stop by Ridgeview Park from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
