    Salute to the Tuskegee Airmen of the Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    Despite adversity and limited opportunities, African Americans have played a significant role in US military history over the past 300 years. They were denied military leadership roles and skilled training because many believed they lacked qualifications for combat duty. Before 1940, African Americans were barred from flying for the US military. Civil rights organizations and the black press exerted pressure that resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941. They became known as the Tuskegee Airmen.


    The military selected Tuskegee Institute to train pilots because of its commitment to aeronautical training. Tuskegee had the facilities, and engineering and technical instructors, and climate for year-round flying. The first Civilian Pilot Training Program students completed their instruction in May 1940. The Tuskegee program was then expanded and became the center for African-American aviation during World War II.


    The Tuskegee Airmen overcame segregation and prejudice to become one of the most highly respected fighter groups of World War II. They proved conclusively that African Americans could fly and maintain sophisticated combat aircraft. The Tuskegee Airmen’s achievements, together with the men and women who supported them, paved the way for full integration of the US military. 


    Nov. 6, 1998, President Clinton approved Public Law 105-355, which established the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, to commemorate and interpret the heroic actions of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II. The site contains a museum and interpretive programs at Moton Field and a national center.


    Salute to the sons of the US Virgin Islands: Henry E. Rohlsen and Herbert Heywood, The Tuskegee in Paradise, and to the newsletter about them of the same name.

People visit cemeteries and memorials to honor those who have died in the military service. The United States flag is solemnly lowered to half flag staff position where it remains till noon.


    Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration day, was initially intended to honor the fallen union and confederate soldiers in the Americal Civil War. It was later extended to honor and remember all the military personnel who had fallen in the line of duty.

    Benny Goodman and His Orchestra ‎– Sing, Sing, Sing


    Label: RCA Victor ‎– 36205


    Series: Swing Classic –


    Format: Shellac, 12", 78 RPM 


    Country: US


    Genre: Jazz


    Style: Big Band, Swing


    A: Sing, Sing, Sing Part 1


    B: Sing, Sing, Sing Part 2


    Record Company – Radio Corporation of America


    This was recorded July 6, 1937 in Hollywood, mixes 09671-2 and 09672-2 and issued as 36205. Arranger is Jimmy Munday.


    My copy of "Sing, Sing, Sing" (introducing "Christopher Columbus" [Louis Prima]) is 12" RCA Victor 36205A-B. The top of the label says "Swing Classic," perhaps suggesting that it was part of a set; I don't have the rest of the set, if indeed it came with. The entire personnel of the Goodman band at that time is listed on the labels (both sides!). Included are such luminaries as Hymie Schertzer and Adrian Rollini, saxes; Harry James and Ziggy Elman, trumpets; Harry Goodman (BG's brother), string bass; Jess Stacy, piano; Gene Krupa, drums. Total 14 (5 reeds, incl. BG; 3 trpts., 2 trombones, 4 rhythm (piano, bass, drums, guitar). Mmm, not a bad bunch
