Reflections on their contributions to American history and culture
In commemoration of Veterans Day 2014, Documented Original Tuskegee Airmen will reflect on the contributions of Tuskegee Air Women to American history and culture.
Veterans Day originated in November 1919. The signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919 ended World War I. On Nov. 11, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the day as the first celebration of the "war to end all wars." He envisioned the citizenry through parades and other ceremonies paying tribute to the soldiers who died in the "Great War" and provided Americans with peace and justice.
