A Post from our FaceBook page:
“We took teens to Flying Cloud airport on Saturday- Steve, Detrice and I. It was all about the history of the Tuskegee airmen in WW ll. Amazing men who escorted fighter planes as they did their job. It is known that these men were told they could not learn how, they could not do the job of being pilots…., they could not…..And yet, they did it so well they were requested to fly with the bombers over and over again.
We are pictured with Dr. Harold Brown, a Tuskegee member, who grew up on the north side and went to North High. What an honor to meet Harold. Our neighbor kids really the took the message of “can do” if you push through with confidence. My family friend, Tim Barzen, made it all happen for us. Thank you, Tim.
(The last picture is when we stopped and got cold, very cold, spring water to fill our bottles-for free).”– SK2
