Leon J. DeLisle is on a mission to complete his film project,
“AN AIRMAN'S STORY ”
DeLisle's current work in progress is a detailed account of the legacies of the airmen from all eras of military aviation. All of his adult life he was blessed, to have the unique opportunity, to know and associate with countless veterans.
His home and office is the history of military aviation in America, framed signed photographs with Delisle, and the pioneers of aviation.
“An Airman's Story” as of this date, is comprised of more than one thousand hours of taped interviews. It’s an extraordinary record in which they tell their own story, unrehearsed and unscripted, in their own homes.
These are their individual stories. The brave men and women of America's Air Forces. The early dreams of General William "Billy" Mitchell, the WWI visionary of American Air Power, were fulfilled and implemented by General
H.H. "Hap" Arnold during WWII. To this day, every American aviator is part of this proud Legacy.
These stories have captured the Arc of the Human Spirit. From children, they were fascinated and inspired by flight. They built models from wood scraps, to later years becoming airmen. This is their journey, told as never before. Their sacrifices has enabled the world to live free of tyranny and oppression. Our current men and women who serve in America`s Air Forces are the new Greatest Generation. Noble and courageous in every way.
Delisle has known personally and developed the support of over 800,000 veterans and organizations from the U.S. and worldwide, with prior first hand experiences, sanctioned by the Department of Defense WWII Commemorative Committee. With DeLisle's vast matrix of experience in this venue, he is able to bring to the viewers the adventures of flight; from Props to Jets, and into the Space Age.
"These powerful and poignant stories will be provided to schools, colleges, and military academies to provide teachers, scholars, and historians an active forum for discussion and debate. Our mission is to encourage an educational platform to create a better understanding of the valiant sacrifices of the courageous men and women who have served in America ’s Air Forces. This will be accomplished by utilizing the latest technology from the multimedia industry."
