 Bendix raceMy co-workers are aware of my love for air racing.  One of them was kind enough to share this article from American Heritage with me.  It details some of the early histoy of air racing during the 20s and 30s.  The article is lengthy, but it is well worth the read and mentions some great names from aviation history (Doolittle is one) and gives us some insight into what the competition was like for the Bendix and Thompson Trophies.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
