On Friday, February 3rd, Colonel Charles E. McGee, a decorated WWII Tuskegee Airman Pilot, will be at the Pacific Aviation Museum at Pearl Harbor to discuss his career and the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, an all African American squadron who overcame segregation and prejudice to become one of the most highly respected fighter groups of WWII.
This is for school groups and homeschool groups are invited to participate!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear from Colonel McGee, who not only overcame racism, but went on to become a fighter pilot in WWII, Korea and Vietnam, and at the age of 97, still holds the record for the highest three-war total of fighter combat missions of any pilot in the United States Air Force history. Colonel McGee travels across the country speaking to kids about the importance of remaining positive even when faced with adversity, as well as the importance of hard work and getting a good education.

I'm a homeschooling mom of two, enjoying our time in Hawaii and hoping to share some of that experience with you, including ideas, reviews, resources, and information.
