The CAF Red Tail Squadron’s Virtual Museum has an entire section of our online collection dedicated to memorials related to the Tuskegee Airmen. And now, we need YOUR help to build an interactive map of memorials!

Contribute to our project June 1-30 and be entered in a drawing to win an official CAF Red Tail Squadron P-51C Mustang mug. Hurry, we need your help during the month of June so we can launch our Tuskegee Airmen Interactive Memorial Map in July!

We believe it’s important to seek out and document all memorials to Tuskegee Airmen, across the U.S. and beyond, to showcase the support communities everywhere have for these American trailblazers. You can help honor the Tuskegee Airmen by sleuthing out memorials that should be included in the CAF Red Tail Squadron Virtual Museum and our exciting interactive map, which will help educate others about their important contributions to our nation’s history.

We have found these hidden gems in libraries, public parks, cemeteries, airports and other spots off the beaten path. Can you spot one in your community or home state? Dig in to this fun project and help us create the Tuskegee Airmen Interactive Memorial Map! Snap a picture and submit online!

 

The CAF Red Tail Squadron is a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel. Learn more at www.redtail.org.
