Re-enactment Bio

Hello my name is James Mangan and I am a Junior here at Mary Washington.  I came here on the GI Bill after serving for three years in the 82nd Airborne during the War.  After returning home from the European Theatre of Operations in 1945, I wanted to pursue an education so that I could eventually become a high school history teacher and baseball coach.  I also wanted to pursue a nice young girl that I could settle down and start a family with if possible.  I come from a modest background and I grew up in Alexandria, Virginia with my parents and three little brothers.  My parents immigrated to the U.S. in the 1920’s from Ireland before the onset of the Great Depression.  My father works hard as a brick-layer while my mother raises my three little brothers who are still in elementary and high school.  I hope that my education will provide me with an opportunity to support my family for the future.
