June 29, 2010 |0 Comments
Franklin UB (New Albany, Ohio) held its annual Faith and Freedom Sunday on July 27. Pastor Mike Brown says they use the service to to celebrate our God-given freedoms and honor those in the military who fought to keep them. Local leaders and politicians are invited. They also have “Guests of Honor.”
This year, they honored the Tuskegee Airmen, the military’s first black pilots. However, none of the nine surviving Tuskegee airmen from the Ohio chapter were able to attend–most would now be in their 90s.
