As universal military service fades from the public experience, many members of the American public will never get to meet their soldiers and learn of our military’s legacy of service and contribution to our Country.
Our military’s deeds will be recorded in history books but our veterans will not be heard. Our military aircraft will come to rest in museums, or stuck on poles, but they will never fly again.
How then will our Country’s military legacy live on, except in the hearts and minds of its veterans? The heritage and the professionals who made this history are little know or recognized. these historical aricraft are being given to foreign goverments or sold for scrap.
Finally, there is a present generation of young Americans who have no firsthand knowledge of the contribution of these Sky Soldiers and their aircraft. When their aircraft are gone and their stories left untold, their legacy will remain forever unknown to the American people. The AAHF is acting to change this.
