During WWII the Tuskegee Airmen registered one of the finest combat records in military aviation history and helped change our nation. Lt. Col. Howard L. Baugh of Petersburg, VA was a member of this elite group, amassing an impressive service record which included being one of only 72 of the 352 pilots deployed to shoot down enemy aircraft in combat. Of the 112 enemy aircraft shot down by the Tuskegee Airmen during WWII, he is credited with 1.5 of those Aerial Victories. Baugh received numerous commendations including the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal with 3 Oak Leaf Clusters, and the USAF Commendation Medal. In 2004, he was one of only four Tuskegee Airmen awarded the French Legion of Honor Award by the French Government at a ceremony in Paris. The BHMVA is honored to be the new home of the life-size statue commissioned by the Howard Baugh Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. to recognize the many contributions and accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Quick reminder of how we get down in Manchester. This may be our last First Fridays of the season and we’re looking to end with a bang! We’re eyeing the weather as we know you are as well. Looks good right?? We’re apart of @artoberva again this year and we want to ensure the city an amazing time. We still have room for vendors, artists and opportunities for performers!
