" Look and act like Red Army soldiers, NOT Red Army reenactors "
- The unofficial unit motto.
Welcome to the website of the Red Guard! The Red Guard is a non-political historical WWII/Great Patriotic War Red Army reenacting organization dedicated to recreating the experiences, struggles, and daily life of a typical Red Army Guards unit. We’re based on the east coast with members from Florida to New Jersey, Ohio to Georgia, and with honorary members in Russia, Belarus, etc...
We chose the name "Red Guard" to give us the flexibility to portray different front-line Guards Infantry units at tacticals, training events, work weekends, and living histories. Our goal is to portray the typical Red Army Guards soldier and to recreate the environment felt and seen during the Great Patriotic War. Through historically correct uniforms, accouterments, weapons, and tactics, we attempt to further our mutual understanding of the greatest armed struggle in history. Safety, learning, and authenticity are our three major goals as a unit.
We are VERY strict on authenticity - more so than other RKKA units - and for very good reasons. The real frontoviks deserve no less in our portrayal of them! If you want to reenact Red Army merely for fun or to burn powder, perhaps we're not the unit you're looking for. We seek serious historians with true interest in the period and culture, not just people who like to dress up and "play army." We want people who are serious about their impressions, research, appearance, attitude, firearms safety, etc... If you think you have what it takes and would like to join, please see the Members section of this site.
Thank you again for viewing our site. Please enjoy and feel free to share our site with others or add us you your site's links.
