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.

The Grenadines are a haven for scuba divers, some of the world’s most spectacular aquatic scenery and much more. Our first stop takes us to Bequia (pronounced Beck-way), the largest of the Grenadines. Fresh from a dive at Devils Table with her dive buddy Cathy Sachs of Dive Bequia, Tonya and Cathy will recount their dive and why Bequia offers an unusual diving experience. Cathy will also share how this island has changed her life. Then we’ll visit Bequia’s Park Bay, home to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, where a native retired skin-diving fisherman affectionately known as “Brother King”, has spent more than a decade of his life to helping to conserve the endangered hawksbill turtle. Brother King and his helpers monitor the beaches and nests here to protect mother turtles from poachers. They also care for the baby hatchlings in the sanctuary during the turtles’ vulnerable years of life. Many of the hatchlings are released into a protective area just south of Bequia called Tobago Cays—our next stop. Lesroy Noel is the Park Ranger for the Tobago Cays Marine Park which lies in the southern Grenadines. The area comprises of five isles bordered by a giant horseshoe reef and teems with wildlife and wild sea turtles. Finally, we’ll travel just a short distance by boat to the private Palm Island where we’ll catch up with the island’s resident artist and (retired) medical professional Dr. Patrick Chevallier. Patrick is one of the world’s premiere undersea artists and his character is as charming and colorful as his artwork.

A production of The Peralto JADE Foundation (A US NGO/501c3 on-Profit)
Jen Pio has her Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology. She currently provides case management and outreach to the homeless community. She is a wife and mother with four beautiful daughters. Jen was born in Albuquerque, new Mexico. Her family then moved to California where she grew up in Long Beach. Jen loves playing softball and enjoying her family. She has always had experiences of what people call "de ja vu", or as she wouId like to say, "It's been seen". Her oldest daughter showed some psychic abilities at a very young age, but it trickled away as the years passed. She thinks partly because it was not focused on or encouraged enough. They currently live in Westminster, CA. for almost 2 years since moving from Kea'au, Hawaii where they lived for almost a year and a half. Jen will be speaking with us about the paranormal in Hawaii and her and her families experiences. One of the stories that we all have heard of is The Curse of Pele. "Pele’s Curse is the belief that anything natively Hawaiian, such as sand, rock, or pumice, will impart bad luck on whoever takes it away from the island. One version about the legend’s genesis is this: a disgruntled park ranger, angry at the number of rocks that were being taken from the islands by visitors, said that Pele would curse them with bad luck should they take anything. Another version often told is that bus drivers, tired of the dirt and grime brought on their buses by the tourists’ collection of rocks, started the story at the beginning of each tour to discourage the rock collecting. True or not, every year countless tourists send these back in order to escape the awful bad luck they acquired". (ZACH ROYER, paranormal Investigator.)
In continuing the series for the North American Sasquatch Researcher, Nite Callers Bigfoot Radio is excited to bring you a husband-wife duo, Todd and Diane Neiss.
Eyewitness turned researcher, Todd Neiss is an Active Duty Staff Sergeant in the Oregon Army National Guard; and a veteran of the Iraq War. He founded the “American Primate Foundation” in 1998. Actively researching these elusive creatures for over two decades, Neiss has been the subject of many television shows and documentaries and has been a featured speaker at numerous Bigfoot conferences across the U.S. and Canada. He holds an Associate of Arts degree in Multi-Disciplinary Studies from Grantham University.
Diane Stocking Neiss is currently employed by the Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) and founded “Stocking Hominid Research” in 2007. She too has given lectures at various conferences as well as appeared on television. Diane became interested in Bigfoot at a very young age and went on to conduct research in the Southeastern United States as far back as 1974. She co-authored the cryptozoological book “Elementum Bestia” in 2007. After visiting the Pacific Northwest in the 1990s, Stocking ultimately moved to Oregon, where she continues her research with her husband Todd. Diane holds an Associate of Science degree in Forestry from Lake City Forestry College in Florida.
Todd & Diane Neiss live aboard a 42-foot motor yacht christened “Jadoo Shikari” (Hindu for “Mystery Hunter”) in Portland Oregon. Upon retiring, they plan to utilize the yacht as a research vessel; exploring the numerous wilderness inlets along the British Columbian coastline in search of Bigfoot. Equipped with a mast mounted remote-controlled FLIR camera, they intend to explore intercostal islands and scour their shorelines and interior for any evidence of these elusive creatures.
When wildlife biologist Stacey Couch undertook a full-time role living alone on an island to care for endangered foxes in a re-introduction program, she had no idea that she would discover an alarming absence of meaning and purpose in her life. The experience was an accidental vision quest that spurred a dramatic life change.
Luckily, she had support. On many of her treks on the island, Stacey found herself accompanied - and even harassed! - by a stunning Northern Harrier Hawk - a winged creature not previously known to inhabit the islands. It wasn't long before she discovered that the companion of her walks actually nested very near her cabin. The visitations that she experienced seemed more than an accident; the hawk and her small contingent of family and fellow hawk couples, opened up Stacey to the unseen realms. They seemed to speak to her, to mirror her, to expand her in some way, to crack open the door between the life she was living and a spiritual gateway that she was only beginning to sense.
This elegant creature, named Thalia, becomes Stacey's first teacher. The relationship between the two females - one human and one hawk - Stacey's growing ability to find answers to her heart's questions in trance, and Stacey's immersion in the natural and shamanic world began to create healing, expansion and a new found sense of joy. And once Thalia leaves the three-dimensional world behind, she becomes a powerful guide for Stacey in the shamanic world.
