A LOOK AT WWII: Take a short drive up the interstate to discover _ or remember _ what soldiers faced during World War II.

The fourth annual World War II Commemoration Day will be held at Bushnell's Dade Battlefield State Historic Site from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The event marks the 58th anniversary of America's entry into World War II and will feature re-enactors as well as members of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, who will depict how soldiers lived while they were at war during the 1940s.

Re-enactors from all over the state will portray soldiers not only in American regalia, but also French, Russian, British and German. A blank firing demonstration will showcase the weapons of World War II during the afternoon activities.

A military collectors show will be going on throughout the event, with buy-sell-trade items available.

The Dade historic site requests a $2 donation per vehicle, or a $1 donation for cyclists and walkers, for park improvements and future events. The site is east of Interstate 75 (Exit 63) and just west of U.S. 301 in Bushnell. For information, call (352) 793-4781.
