Get out your camera! We are challenging YOU to send us a photo of your Tuskegee Airmen artifact, memorabilia, memorial, artwork, personal belongings… anything you think would make a good addition to our CAF Red Tail Squadron Virtual Museum!
The fun starts TODAY! The entire month of December, each time you submit a photo of an item to the Virtual Museum you will be entered into our weekly drawing for a mahogany wood model of our P-51C Mustang Tuskegee Airmen, an $85 value! You NEED this for your collection!
We know you appreciate the history and experience of the Tuskegee Airmen as much as we do, so we’re asking you to join the team and help up find some great items to include in the Virtual Museum. Building out this great resource will help people of all ages – from all over the world! – learn more about this import piece of history.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Is there a memorial to the Tuskegee Airmen near you? There are statues, plaques and other monuments at airports, parks and other public places all over the country. We want to showcase ALL of them in our Virtual Museum. Snap a pic and let us know!
Do you or someone you know have a medal, certificate, uniform, tool or other item that was used by a Tuskegee Airmen? We don’t house any physical items in our Virtual Museum, so the item stays with you. All we need is a picture, info and your permission to share!
Are there artifacts at your local history or air museum? Ask permission from the museum staff to include a photo in our Virtual Museum. We will gladly cite the resource and link back to their museum’s webpage.
Not sure? Contact the CAF Red Tail Squadron Virtual Museum manager with your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t waste any time submitting your item for consideration! The first drawing will be Friday, December 8. Submit each week during the month of December for a chance to win!
