"Keep 'em flying" is the motto of the Confederate Air Force, and each October the owners, pilots and crews of WWII Warbirds gather in Midland, Texas, to do just that. Before September 11th, AIRSHO had already scheduled a recognition of Pearl Harbor survivors. After September 11th, CAF decided to "honor those who have lost their lives not only in service to this country, but also victims of this recent attack, and the brave Americans — soldiers, firefighters, policemen, medical personnel and volunteers — who work tirelessly to protect and care for others."
