Modern Forces was at Military Odyssey this year with the guys from the 101st Airborne LRRP/Ranger LHA who had a great display, you can see the pictures of that here. It was a good show but I thought it seemed a lot smaller that previous years with no Romans, English Civil War or WWI reenactors there (that I saw) There was also a lack of horse for the Napoleonic and Western displays.
