2…………> Finally Back Home: A Tuskegee Pilot


The remains of one of the Tuskegee Airmen have been identified for the first time, at the site where Captain Lawrence Dickson’s plane crashed on the Italy-Austria border during a recon mission in 1944. An American team discovered the wreckage in 2012, and excavated the site five years later, using DNA of his daughter to identify his remains. He is the first of 27 Tuskegee Airmen who are listed as missing in action to be found. The 24-year-old captain in the 100th Fighter Squadron took off in his P-51 Mustang fighter plane from a base in Italy to conduct an aerial reconnaissance mission on December 23, 1944, and crashed when the engine failed, and the aircraft was seen crashing along the Italy-Austria border.



3…………> A Hero Passes Away: President George H.W. Bush


“George H.W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41’s life and love, for the compassion of those who cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens,” that’s how his son, former president George W. Bush remembered his father who passed away aged 94.

President Donald Trump also issued a statement eulogizing the former president.

Melania [Trump] and I join with a grieving Nation to mourn the loss of former President George H.W. Bush, who passed away last night. Our hearts ache with his loss, and we, with the American people, send our prayers to the entire Bush family, as we honor the life and legacy of 41.”

Family spokesman Jim McGrath confirmed his death in a brief statement but did not specify a cause.



4…………> French Revolution, Part 2: Down With Macron


“Yellowjackets will triumph about the fluorescent vests protesters wear,” a rebellious graffiti sprayed onto the Arc de Triomphe announced as 107 people were arrested protesting in a wave of anger about raising taxes in clashes with police in the Islamic Sheikdom of France.

This is the third straight weekend of violent uprising against the policies of the country’s president, Rabbinical Grand Ayatollah Emmanuel Macron, as furious citizens build barricades in the middle of streets in central Paris, lighting fires and throwing rocks at officers.

They initially began over increasing fuel tax hikes and have since expanded to include a broad range of demands related to the cost of living, with the Prime Minister saying more than 5,000 protesters were on and around the Champs-Elysees avenue, throwing large rocks and removing the barriers at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, while others sang the national anthem.
