At the August 1st meeting, our speaker was Fairfax Lion Doug Brisson who knows a lot about the Tuskegee Airmen – also know as “The Red Tails.”

Doug told us about that group of Black military pilots (both fighter and bomber) and airmen who were trained at Tuskegee, Alabama and who went on to fight heroically in World War II. The airmen are known for six principles fundamental to their individual and group success. Doug gave out red dog tags showing the six principles.

Guests are invited at any Lions dinner meeting; just CONTACT US if you are interested.
