Man, this Twitter thing may only have 140 characters available to get the message out there, but the program itself has about 140 quirks.  Last Friday when I was opening the new account with the “Squadron” designation, I asked Twitter to recognize “cafredtailsquadron” and it indicated it would only recognize “cafredtailsquad” due to field size constraints.  Now our page calls itself “cafredtail” with “cafredtailsquadron” in figurative parentheses next to it!
     Obviously, this works adequately, but I sure would love to know how the Twitter application removed “squad” on its own!  Bottom line: here’s the definitive way to find us on Twitter.!/cafredtail. 
      Our Twitter feed is updated at least once each weekday morning and more often when something of interest needs to be shared.  We hope you’ll find us, follow us, and tell your friends.

The CAF Red Tail Project is a volunteer-driven 501c3 non-profit organization that operates under the auspices of the Commemorative Air Force. For more information, please visit
