Break Time: Tuskegee Airmen Monument, etc..

Seeing documentaries and reading of the Tuskegee Airmen my interest was piqued when I saw a sign off I 95 for their monument. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first United States Army Air Corps, (AAC), black military aviators. The AAC was the precursor to the Air Force.

Here is a picture of a few of the 932 Tuskegee Airmen.

These individuals flew more than 15,000 sorties during World War II and were known for their bravery and astute abilities. Besides being pioneers their contributions lead to the end of racial divide in the American Armed Forces. Training in Tuskegee, Alabama, their name was coined from the airfield in which they trained.


Never one to let a break go without several adventures I also stopped at a roadside fish stand purchasing $20 worth of cod. Thanks, gals for your recipes. The fish and the seasonings you recommended were sublime.


While in North Carolina most folks spoke of this store, sadly, I never found it. Well, low and behold I did on my route to Florida. What a fun place to shop and the bargains amazing. Wish I had more room in the car. Have to put this place on the radar for next trip.

Time to get serious and back to the drive.. Playtime over, oh shucks!
