For the 3rd consecutive year Freedom Vehicles Association in conjunction with the Colonial Heritage festival, Cries of Freedom, and sponsored in part by Provo’s Freedom Festival, will be providing the military vehicle and equipment display July 1st – 4th 2017 at SCERA Park in Orem Utah. Colonial Heritage Festival and Freedom Vehicles Associations’ combined interactive learning displays are the largest public U.S. History Education event in the United States. Visitors are able to come and participate in various events while they touch, see, smell and interact with the tools and equipment used to defend the Freedoms that we hold so dear.
Freedom Vehicles sets up a military vehicle and equipment display ranging from 1914 to present day using authentic equipment and vehicles from the time period represented. Participants will be taught about the vehicles and equipment used through interactive guided tours being taught by representatives of Freedom Vehicles.

Fun Freedom Promoting Educational Activities

  • Boot Camp: Participants will be able to Learn how to march in formation, toss a grenade, lay land mines, and “shoot” with prop wooden guns. They will then be able to use these skills to participate in a staged skirmish on a battlefield.
  • Machine Gun: Graduates of Boot camp will be able to shoot a Simulated .50 Cal Machine Gun (This is a safe activity with constant supervision)
  • Pictures: Additionally graduates will be able to get family and graduation class pictures.
  • Dog Tags: Veterans, Boot Camp Graduates, and participants will be taught about the importance of Dog Tags and be able to receive their own custom made Dog Tag made on a WWII Dog Tag Machine.
  • Air Cannon: Book camp cadets will be able to shoot an Air Cannon: Participants will be able to shoot candy and t-shirts out of an air cannon that resembles a WWII Artillery Cannon.
  • Equipment Tours: The tours will be for all visitors and will consist of learning about all the vehicles displayed, all field equipment and gear, and weapons. These tours will be in varying stages depending on how in depth the visitor wish to learn. Tours will be guided and taught by well-educated representatives and members of Freedom Vehicles Association.

When participants enter the Freedom Vehicles Camp we hope they will experience a look and feel similar to that of a real camp of WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. This will be made possible through the use of equipment, vehicles, tents, camo net, and much more.

  1. Thank you Freedom Vehicles for bringing our American history to the fingertips of the youth of our country. All great things start small, and this looks to become a great hands-on force for instilling this nation’s glorious past into the minds of our children. Again, Thank You!

  2. Thank you Vernon! Everything good takes time and dedication, and I hope you had a good turnout to see the display. Did you go to BYU to see their commemoration of the Great WAr?
    I am reading a Patton book and the detail is fascinating! We have no idea what our brave military does for us and freedom. We are in jeopardy of losing it and that is no hyperbole! Love, Grandma

  3. What a wonderful service you provide! THANK YOU for all you are doing to help the young people of your county to learn about our precious freedoms, bravely and valiantly fought for. You are awesome! Keep up the good work!

  4. Well done Vernon! I am so proud of you! Are you going to put this show on the road? Is this something that schools have had fieldtrips to come and see? I love it. Keep up the good work!

  5. Well done on a worthy cause. You have the support of the Idaho Military Vehicle Preservation Association (IMVPA). Keep it going!

  6. This is just spectacular Vernon!! I know you have spent countless hours and a ton of money to do this, and I’m sure your efforts are very much appreciated by those who have served in the Armed services. What a wonderful tribute!!! We are so very proud of you!!!

  7. Vernon, your enthusiasm and zest for patriotism and desire to educate and share your love of our country is inspiring. I look forward to working with you in all future events. I’m sorry I can’t attend your 4th of July event. I will be convoying a 1942 Chevy 1.5 ton G506 from Vancouver Wa to Salt Lake City for the 4th of July holiday! Please contact me and visit my web page so that we may work together in our mutual efforts to do great things. Semper Fi, The Captain gartforvets.org

    Captain,
    It was great getting to meet you at the D-Day Rollout. I look forward to helping you help Vets through all you efforts.

  9. We had a wonderful time at the July 1-4 celebration in Scera Park, Orem. I was truly impressed at the restored army vehicles on display. The tour provided that told about each vehicle was great. My grandchildren enjoyed the many activities. Thank you for what you do.
