We are taking a short break from working on our pictures of the Panama Cruise to attend our grandson's birthday in Georgia.
Our first stop along the way was the national exhibit site for the Tuskegee airman, as they are commonly known. They were the first African Americans to be trained as military pilots. They served in combat during WWII in Europe. All of the training was performed in Tuskegee, Alabama. We had tried to visit here last year but found the exhibit still under development.
While not a large display, it does give you a feel for the conditions of the training and the difficulties the recruits experienced. While the display is small, there is a lot of history to absorb.
