Tuskegee Airman Harold H. Brown
Memorial Project

The Liberty Aviation Museum, located in Port Clinton, Ohio, has an opportunity for you to honor one of the most important and influential men in the military and education, Lt. Col. Harold H. Brown. We are working with nationally recognized sculptor, Andy Sacksteder, to create a lifesize bronze sculpture of Dr. Brown to grace the entrance of the Museum. As one of the Tuskegee Airmen, Harold H. Brown made history as a combat pilot during World War II. He was not only an airman, but also as an educator; one of the fathers of the two-year college option, giving young students new confidence toward stellar careers. Harold passed away in 2023 at the age of 98, but his legacy lives on.
Now, The Liberty Aviation Museum and you have the honor and opportunity to help make this sculpture & memorial a reality.

Click Here for more information and to make a donation today. And, thank you.
