Training WWII Style (2 photos) / by Dave Hileman

We visited the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site in Tuskegee, Alabama. If you are tracking that is #192 out of 417 sites. The buildings are pretty original and have not been added to, the area looks pretty much as it did the 1942. There were no barracks on site, the airmen bunked at Tuskegee College. The site was isolated for both good and bad reasons, privacy was good, segregation was not. These men not only had to learn to fly, learn combat techniques but also overcome the beliefs that they were not capable of doing either well. Their war record disproved both aspects. The one hanger is kept open and like it appeared, the other is a nice museum. Inspirational site, go see it, read a book, see the movie.
