    Aww! I got to meet a few of these guys about 7 years ago! Love them so much!

  2. Rodney Martin says:

    I have visited the Tuskegee Airmen’s training barracks “museum” at Moton Field in Tuskegee. Very close and convenient stop off of I-85. It’s a “Chilling and Thrilling” experience that should top the list of history buffs and grateful U.S. citizens.
