Guests of Honor
We are fortunate to have several, original Tuskegee Airmen in attendance. This momentous occasion is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet these living legends and to thank them for all they have done for our country. It should be noted, Western Pennsylvania had the greatest number of volunteers that served as Tuskegee Airmen in WWII.
Brigadier General Kristin E. Goodwin, the Commandant of Cadets at the United States Air Force Academy.
Copies of Commemorative Congressional Medals will be presented to Tuskegee Airmen family members who were not able to attend the 2007 Congressional Gold Metal Award ceremony with President George W. Bush.

Duquesne University Military
Provides free services to active and retired military personnel and their families. Their services were highlighted in the 2015 Documentary "Project 22" which brought awareness to the mental health crises facing our military families. For every $1000 we donate, a military veteran and his/her family can receive counseling services for one year.
Tuskegee Memorial Foundation in Sewickley, Pa
This is America’s largest memorial dedicated to the heroic Tuskegee Airmen. Their mission is to ensure that any Western Pennsylvania member of the Tuskegee group is buried with military honors and dignity, and to continue their legacy by educating future generations about their historic contributions to WWII, aviation and our nation.
