IAMAW Rocky Mountain Lodge 47 Presorted Standard Mail U.S. Postage Paid Denver CO Permit No. 1949 5621 Bowen Court #101 Commerce City CO 80022 RETURN SERVICE REQUESTED IAMAW ROCKY MOUNTAIN LODGE 47 Keeping our Members Informed and Motivated January - February, 2012 Volume 2 - Number 1 Happy New Year 2012 A quick word from the Executive Council, wishing each and every member a Happy and Prosperous New Year. The recently released movie Red Tails details the accomplishments and contribution made by African-American pilots commonly known as the Tuskegee Airmen. These famed airmen fought against the enemy in the air and against racism and segregation on the ground. Their patriotism and combat success led to military integration in 1948 when President Truman's Executive Order 9981. Election Year Encouragement This is an election year and we encourage all members to research their candidates, the issues and vote their conscience. The Tuskegee Airmen are often referred to as the Red Tails, or Red Tail Angels, due to the distinct red tail of their aircraft. Many Red Tail missions were flown in the P-51 Mustang. An aircraft built by what is now The Boeing Company. Following the war, many Tuskegee Airmen were employed as civilians in the aircraft industry. International President R. Thomas Buffenbarger is said to have apprenticed under a former Tuskegee Airmen in IAM Local Lodge 912. Your voice counts and everyone should be proud and thankful that they have a right to vote and have their voices heard. Over the last year we have all watched the news and witnessed people from all parts of the world stand up against dictators and the like striving for freedom, something we too often take for granted, which includes workers rights and the right to vote. Many have become complacent and feel like their vote does not count and think that nothing can change the way our government works. Among other significant African-Americans in aeronautics was Bessie Coleman, the first black woman in the world to earn her pilot's license. It is said she paved the way for the Tuskegee Airmen to fly. Additionally, African-American women working in the factories building the planes played a large part in the war effort. Among these black Rosie the Riveters were IAM members from District Lodge 751 (pictured right). Nothing could be further from the truth so Vote! 1 William W.
