The mission of the Commemorative Air Force Red Tail Squadron is to educate people of all ages about the Tuskegee Airmen so their strength of character and ability to triumph over adversity may serve as a means to inspire others to rise above obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals. Woven throughout their outreach program, the group’s Six Guiding Principles – Aim High, Believe In Yourself, Use Your Brain, Be Ready To Go, Never Quit and Expect to Win – were developed alongside documented original Tuskegee Airmen to inspire students to rise above their own obstacles.
