The Checkertails Organization was formed in 2010 to protect, preserve and promote the history of the WWII 325th Fighter Group, known as the Checkertail Clan.
Over the past five years we have hosted annual reunions for the veterans, developed a website and a thriving Facebook page, helped to erect a monument in Lesina, Italy, promoted two original full-length documentaries and connected thousands of people to share the history and stories of these amazing men and their legendary wartime service.
Although the veterans are no longer able to gather as they did for over 60 years, we would like to continue to grow and connect their families, supporters and future generations with our heroes for years to come.
We propose to use the funds collected in this campaign to assist in the promotion of a third documentary, expand the website to become interactive and include a way for Checkertails around the world to submit digital historical images of original photos, documents, and memorabilia. We would like to develop a line of merchandise for sale which will help to sustain our effort.
At this time, we rely solely on donations for this organization and value every amount that is raised for our cause. Please help us reach our goal! Thank you!
