Today is “Give To The Max” day, powered by and sponsored by  The idea is to make it easy for people all across the country to donate to the non-profit of their choice in a sort of 24-hour “giving blitz.”  This is the first year the CAF Red Tail Squadron has participated in it and we invite you to check out the page on Razoo that our Marketing Director, Lavone Kay, put together. 
     It has some good info about the Rise Above educational program, which is what the Squadron is all about – using the lessons of the Tuskegee Airmen’s rising above the obstacles in their way to become legendary pilots and soldiers, and purposeful American citizens.  It also gives donors an idea about how their donations will be used.  All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
     Please take a minute and check out this link to our donation page.  Even if you decide not to give, you’ll get some good information.
     By the way, Friday’s blog will be about another kind of “blitz” – the one Hitler launched over England in 1940 in an attempt to beat the citizenry down.  In London, the citizenry went down, all right – into the subway stations as bombs dropped overhead.  It’s a stirring story of heroic English pilots protecting equally heroic people who were determined to not let Hitler win.
