As we have seen several people asking about Western Front content, we felt it would be wise of us to point you to the: Heroes Of The West mod, who are actually on their third playable release already and working on a major 4th update.
Features already include:
Americans vs Germans
Updated UI to reflect changes
New American uniforms: Airborne and Rangers
American helmets with nets!
New victory music for both factions
And they are looking for more members to help them bring more content sooner (Maps, weapons, voices, vehicles and uniforms)! So if you feel you can help them with one of those, contact them today!

Navigate to your Rising Storm Beta install directory and drill into ROGame/Config. It should look something like this: D:\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Rising Storm Beta\ROGame\Config. Once there open up the DefaultEngine.ini file and search for the following section:
