2. This is a hobby. We are here to educate the public, to share a common interest with our friends, and have a good time in the process. The WCWA does not seek to portray the "real" Army, nor does it encourage its member units to do so.
3. Diversity is one of the strong points of any organization. Our members have dramatically different backgrounds and values. In order to preserve the harmony of the individual units, as well as the WCWA, it is essential that we respect each other's values.
4. Each member is responsible for developing his or her own persona. As living historians we should know what is correct for the period and for our personas within that period. Each member is encuraged to use the historical record as a guide to his or her persona development. All members are actively encouraged to do their own research in order to expand our combined knowledge of the units.
