My parents were in Florida for 5 weeks and brought me back some cool stuff.


You know the new movie that came out about a couple months ago "Red Tails"


Well, one of the resorts my parents where staying at was one of the Tuskegee Airman, Ezra M. Hill Sr.
My dad got to talking with him and ended up getting two books from him, one about the Tuskegee Airmen and one book that is kind of a children's book written by Mr. Hill, himself, which he also autographed. My dad also got an autographed poster too. What was really weird was there was also a German pilot from WWII stay there too, who actually went up against the Red Tails.
He said "they were the toughest pilots he ever when against, and they had to fly way above the clouds to avoid them."

My parents also stopped in an antique store where the got me n antique a metal solider and metal Dinky tank from 1950's ( forgot to take pictures of them).

They also got me a Swedish M-1926 Steel Helmet with the original liner. This helmet was used from 1926 to the end of WWII.
It's pretty cool and fits nice too, but I think it looks good on my 4 year old. Laughing
