Tuskgee Airmen

Tonight I went to a banquet honoring the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, the first Black Fighter group in the United States Military. Got to talk to and meet about six of them before the festivities began; they were very gracious and generous with their time and signatures. It was kind of funny how it reminded me of our church banquets back when I was growing up. One member will be coming out to the La Habra Branch Library Wednesday to give a presentation, and it should be packed. We haven't had a program with this much outside interest before; it is nice to see people so interested in meeting a piece of living history.
