    American Patriot Radio, Tuskegee Airmen

    in Education

    The Tuskegee Airmen Movie was first aired on T.V in 1995.


    The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States armed forces. During World War II, Black Americans in many U.S. states were still subject to the Jim Crow laws and the American military was racially segregated, as was much of the federal government. The Tuskegee Airmen were subjected to racial discrimination, both within and outside the army. All black military pilots who trained in the United States trained at Moton Field and Tuskegee Army Air Field, located near Tuskegee, Alabama, which included five Haitians from the Haitian Air Force (Alix Pasquet, Raymond Cassagnol, Pelissier Nicolas, Ludovic Audant, and Eberle Guilbaud).


    Although the 477th Bombardment Group trained with North American B-25 Mitchell bombers, they never served in combat. The 99th Pursuit Squadron (later, 99th Fighter Squadron) was the first black flying squadron, and the first to deploy overseas (to North Africa in April 1943, and later to Sicily and Italy). The 332nd Fighter Group, which originally included the 100th, 301st, and 302nd Fighter Squadrons, was the first black flying group. The group deployed to Italy in early 1944. In June 1944, the 332nd Fighter Group began flying heavy bomber escort missions, and in July 1944, the 99th Fighter Squadron was assigned to the 332nd Fighter Group, which then had four fighter squadrons.


    Much more info can be found on the web and we incourage you to give a look at all the exciting history that pertains to the great group of Airmen.


    Enjoy and Welcome to Saturday Night at the Movies

    Notre Dame Cathedrals, France

    in Travel

    Notre Dame de Paris was among the first buildings in the world to use the flying buttress (arched exterior supports). The building was not originally designed to include the flying buttresses around the choir and nave. After the construction began and the thinner walls (popularized in the Gothic style) grew ever higher, stress fractures began to occur as the walls pushed outward. In response, the cathedral's architects built supports around the outside walls, and later additions continued the pattern. Many small statues were placed around the outside. These were crafted individually and served as supports for columns and water spouts. Among these are the famous gargoyles. These were originally colored, as was most of the exterior. The paint has worn off, but the grey stone was once covered with vivid colors. The cathedral was essentially complete by 1345.

    Author Carma Dillon and Illustrator Ludovic Leleu of "Saardu" are JaiKaur's guests

    in Spirituality

    Carma Dillon was born by the river in a little tent. By age two she demonstrated brilliance by reciting all of the colors of the
    alphabet. Her poetic nature was first discovered by Mrs. Piggle Wiggle and later mentored by Professor Richard Walter, UCLA
    Screenwriting Chairman. Her spiritual grandfather is Edward Estlin Cummings and she is purported to be the scandalous, secret offspring of an incestuous union between Douglas Adams and Amelia Earhardt. She stands accused of being radically unschooled and dangerously imaginative.

    Ludovic Leleu was born in France and currently resides in Valenciennes. His formal education is in business, Ludovic earned a Baccalaurét Scientifique from Lycée de l'Europe and is Certified as a Professional Coach by the National French Society of Professional Engineers. The story of how he fell into the role as illustrator for Carma's debut novel, "Saardu: The Adventure Begins', is a Facebook Fairytale best told during personal interviews.

    Carma Dillon's debut novel launching a new series that reviewers expect to become a classic. She could have played it safe by writing this complicated plot for mature science fiction readers who already have a grasp of the mind-bending
    possibilities supported by String Theory. Instead, she used her background in working with children to make abstract concepts accessible to younger minds, introducing children to the wonder of the cosmos.
