Singer/Actress Lena Horne, Photo Shoot w/Tuskegee Airmen ( Lucky Boys - Lucky Girl!): Black History Photo Of The Day: THIS WAS MY HISTORY DAY TOPIC LAST YEAR
In honor of Memorial Day, the first photo I am going to share is one of the most popular photos I've ever shared at Vintage Black Glamour, Lena Horne with a group of Tuskegee Airmen on January 1, 1945. There are countless photos of Ms. Horne visiting Tuskegee Airmen and other military personnel to show her support for their service. She also showed her support for them by refusing to perform for segregated military audiences during World War II. Photo: Associated Press.

This picture reminded of John & Schoep. Schoep passed on Friday, July 19, 2013. In one of John's interviews he talked about his dream to match up dogs & soldiers. There's a very special program in Arizona, Soldier's Best Friend that trains shelter animals to be service dogs for veterans with PTSD. http://soldiersbestfriend.org Please consider a donation in Schoep's name to help them.
