TUSKEGEE AIRMEN-The history of this Fighter Gunnery Competition is told in “The Last Hurrah” by Harry T. Stewart, Jr. who was one of the pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group participating in the competition. After the 332nd Fighter Group won the competition...the Record and Trophy were mysteriously lost until Mr. Stewart began to research why each and every year the Air Force Almanac listed the winner of the 1949 Fighter Gunnery Competition (i.e., the U. S. Air Force's very first "Top Gun Competition") as unknown.The record was corrected in 1995, however the trophy remained missing until 2004, when it was discovered in a storage room at the United States Air Force Museum. (Please transfer any Tuskegee Airmen you have to the Cemetery Manager--->

This Memorial Day, let us remember that our freedom did not come without a price. Without the sacrifices of the many brave men and women who died for our nation, we would not enjoy the liberty we know today.To all the men and women who served to give me the freedom I have today, thank you and God Bless. You are not forgotten by my family!

Deepest respects, sir. Thank you for your service to America. A special thank you to all the Tuskegee Airmen for allowing my big brother to come home safe from Europe. Your group escorted the B-24's he was a crew member of many times to their bombing targets during World War 2.
