Thanks for WWII Heritage days

On behalf of the history teachers of the Coweta-Fayette County area, we are most thankful to the men and women of the Dixie Wing Commemorative Air Force for hosting WW II Heritage Days at Falcon Field.

The planes, vehicles, WW II re-enactors, displays, and the entire atmosphere was a fantastic hands-on history experience that goes far beyond what a student would ever encounter in a classroom.

Above and beyond that were the WW II veterans that were able to share first-hand experiences with the public. I particularly enjoyed speaking with Mr. Ron Mooney, a Pearl Harbor survivor.

Our greatest generation will not be with us much longer. I highly recommend that everyone should attend this event next year. My students loved it and it created a real love of history. This was an experience that should not be passed up.
