Now is the time for you to submit entries to the 2009 War Tourist Interactive Calendar, if something exciting happening in your area in 2009 that you want to tell to the War Tourist Community.

Maybe your local museum has a special exhibition? Maybe there is an "Open House" day somewhere in your bunker community? Maybe your group reenacts a famous battle? Maybe there is a buy-and-sell of wartime memorabilia that you arrange or know about?

Whatever it is, tell it to War Tourist. Send an email with relevant information to Event 2009 to have your event included in the 2009 Interactive War Tourist Calendar with a direct link to your event website.
