The American Flag flying above you was previously flown over 14th Air Force Headquarters, Vandenberg AFB, CA on May 13, 2011 supporting Joint Space Forces and the Department of Defense. During World War II, by executive order signed by President Roosevelt, the American Volunteer Group (AVG)was formed using P-40 aircraft to accomplish a 7.7 to 1 kill ratio against superior aircraft. To boost esprit de corps, the AVG painted the aircraft noses with a grinning mouth, flashing teeth and evil eye of the tiger shark. To this day, the members of the 14th Air Force, and the U of M Air Force ROTC, are still referred to as the "Flying Tigers"
