The mission of the Third Platoon (3PLT) is to honor the memory of the former Imperial Japanese Army throughout it’s storied history via living history and reenactment. The hobby is also viewed as a creative outlet to further members’ military studies and field craft. Additionally, the environment enables members to mentor, and be mentored, in the various related trades and disciplines that fall under a martial organization’s umbrella.

Since 3PLT’s inception, members have independently and collaboratively expanded their kit into other eras and nationalities, including but not limited to Imperial and Third Reich era Germany, and various Korean War and Vietnam War impressions.


Presently, the unit is only passively recruiting, focusing on candidates located in Texas.
