Who We Are

The purpose and mission of the Historical Unit of Southern California (HUSC) is to promote an understanding and appreciation for the men and women of the Armed Forces during the 20th century. This is accomplished through training, battle re-enactments, historical research, education, public displays, and other related activities. The overall goal of this association is to instill within its Members a sense of respect, pride, and loyalty for the men and women who defended their countries in their times of war. HUSC also strives to promote public awareness of the lives and tribulations of those men and women of the Armed Forces, and offer a gathering place for people who appreciate and respect the sacrifices given by veterans. This association abides by all Federal, State, and local laws, including regulations and ordinances as well as all rules set forth by the Historical Unit of Southern California.
