We’re excited to hear what you think about the new look and feel of www.redtail.org. Our new site is easy to navigate and offers a bevy of information about what we are doing… and why we work so hard to continue this labor of love!  Check it out and let us know what you think. You can also now access this blog directly from the new website!

If you haven’t marked it on your calendar yet, we’re currently in New Orleans where the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit is open to the public at the New Orleans Lakefront Airport on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Stop by the Flightline First FBO for this free event, and see some additional exhibits from the National WWII Museum that will be on-site for our event.  Next stop…Turner Field in Atlanta!  For our complete events calendar, click here.
