Written By Retired Lt. Col. Niki Gentry

Tennessee National Air GuardMemphis, TN – American aviation enthusiasts are very familiar with the names of famous aircraft such as “The Wright Flyer,” “Spirit of St. Louis,” “Glamorous Glennis” and “Memphis Belle.”

These groundbreaking machines and their pilots each made history during the relatively young story of manned flight. Yet the longevity of aircraft often means past exploits may go unknown among the Airmen at the controls of the aging flying machines.

Kris Wolfe: Ever Felt Like You Didn’t Fit In?


Child Making a Funny FaceClarksville, TN – We all have something about us that seems odd to those around us, and even more odd to ourselves. I was always envious of girls who did girly things and actually enjoyed them. Many times, I have thought it would be easier to be like other women. Sometimes, I still do, especially when I suspect that I am giving them my crazy-eye-what-in-the-world-look. It’s just easier to fit in.

I’ve known I was weird since I was about 5 or 6. I wasn’t a girl’s girl. I liked the Dukes of Hazard cars better than Barbies (her stupid shoes wouldn’t stay on). I was good at math. I didn’t have crushes on random actors or singers. I couldn’t sing along to NKOTB or Guns and Roses (I preferred John Cougar Mellancamp and Billy Ocean). I never squealed or clapped, or hopped on my tippy toes when I saw my friend that I just saw last week (or last period).  I don’t like bunko, or girly parties, or hugging people I just met. My sense of humor is odd, sometimes questionable, and sometimes delirious. «Read the rest of this article»
