Tulane First Pitch Dinner
Tulane’s First Pitch Dinner was the scene where many Tulane University sports enthusiasts got a first-hand look into the baseball head coach’s mission for a national championship. Coach Dave Pierce also told the dinner guests about the past season and the upcoming season. The dinner gave sponsors, alumni, family, and fans a chance to meet the players, coaches, and staff. First NBC Bank is a major supporter of Tulane athletics, sponsoring such endeavors as restoring the historic Tulane Medallion in Yulman Stadium, the University’s football team, and the First NBC Cup, a series of games between Tulane and UNO every year. Tulane, incidentally, won the last two of those games in 2015.

Tuskegee Airmen Event
America’s famed “Red Tail Squadron” of World War II is in the spotlight at New Orleans’ National World War II Museum. The squadron was manned by the heroic Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American military fighter and bomber pilots in the United States Armed Forces.
The museum unveiled the exhibit, which pays tribute to those extraordinary aviators, during a moving ceremony at its U.S. Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center.
Officially, the Tuskegee Airmen made up the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group but became known as the Red Tail Squadron because of the distinguishing red markings on their planes. The color scheme boasted red propeller spinners, and all-red tail surfaces. A number of different aircrafts were used by the squadron, the most notable being the famous P-51 Mustang.
The airmen were trained at the Army Air Field near Tuskegee, Alabama. In addition to the pilots, the name “Tuskegee Airmen” also refers to support personnel such as nurses, cooks, navigators, and mechanics.
