JROTC took eight very deserving cadets to witness the Tuskegee Airmen 'Rise Above' Red Tail and P-51C Mustang Exhibit this morning in Tallahassee. Each of the eight cadets has amassed at least 12 hours of community service this school year, and are upstanding students at THS. This exhibit consisted of an immersive movie documentary experience detailing the struggles and victories of the Tuskegee Airmen. Additionally, cadets were able to witness, up close, a real P-51C Mustang, the plane of the Tuskegee Airmen - it is one of VERY few in existence, still air worthy! Furthermore, cadets were honored to meet A.J. Brickler III, M.D., a Tallahassee native and pilot who spoke on African American contributions to flying. Finally, the cadets voluntarily worked as escorts to a group of elderly dementia patients from Pacifica Senior Living in Tallahassee.
