One flier trained in an open-cockpit biplane during World War II and retired after flying supersonic jets. Another spent more than seven years in a North Vietnamese prisoner-of-war camp. Still another flew United Nations missions in Bosnia with the Maryland Air National Guard.For these Maryland airmen -- and military fliers nationwide -- Veterans Day 1997 has special significance: This year marks the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force as a separate military service, rather than as part of the Army.

McGUIRE AIR FORCE BASE, N.J. - Airman 1st Class David Bernard, 22, attended New York City Technical College in downtown Brooklyn for only a few months before coming to a crucial realization: Once he graduated with an associate's degree in mechanical engineering, he would earn no more than he was pulling down as a jewelry salesman at the Piercing Pagoda. That's when he decided to enlist in the Air Force. Now, two years later, the Canadian-born son of Trinidadian immigrants plans on a long-term career in the military.

When he was a Tuskegee Airman on an Alabama air base in the 1940s, Cecil O. Byron and other members of the all-black squadron could not shop or dine in the nearby town. They were relegated to the balcony at the movies and could not leave the theater until the white patrons had gone. "We were in uniform, getting ready to fight a war, but still not accepted," Byron, 91, said to an audience of students and teachers at Randallstown High School last week. He has been to the movies five times in recent weeks, each time to see "Red Tails," the Hollywood version of the story of the Army Air Forces group that learned to fly, shoot and maintain aircraft at a field near the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama.

Scholten, 26, was one of four special operations airmen killed Saturday when their single-engine U-28 turboprop crashed six miles from Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport, according to the U.S. Africa Command. "This is obviously a tragic incident," Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said Tuesday, according to the American Forces Press Service.

"Red Tails," the years-long project of director George Lucas, is sure to bring some overdue attention to the Tuskegee Airmen, the all-black aviation unit that fought discrimination in the U.S. military as well as our enemies in World War II. Reviews for the movie have not been outstanding, but I'm looking forward to seeing it anyway. (Then again, I've watched "The Longest Day" over and over.)  According to a National Park Service history of the Airmen, before 1940, blacks were barred from flying for the U.S. military.

Conversation is as central to Thanksgiving as the turkey crowning the dinner table. But how many of our treasured conversations do we truly remember - and how often have we wished we could hear again a loved one or friend recount a revealing story? Today, Americans are being invited to act on that impulse by recording just such a conversation in what is being promoted as a "National Day of Listening." The sponsors of this event have shown compellingly in recent years how the act of listening can change opinions, improve relations and transform lives.
