Project Zebra Diaries. Entry # 51:
Boys will always be boys.

(Circa 1944. Russian Zebra Captain pauses after winning a scooter race along the Project Zebra runway in Elizabeth City.

Imagine Joseph Stalin and Theodore Roosevelt envision a top-secret mission at a conference in Iran?

Imagine America factory workers in Philadelphia build 185 of WWII’s largest and deadliest warplanes?

Imagine a select team of US Navy officers worked 24/7 to teach them how to fly the craft in a little town called Elizabeth City, not far from the Atlantic Ocean?

Imagine the men overcoming language barriers and cultural misunderstandings to find some spare moments to race Naval motor scooters for beer and cigarettes?

Imagine, because of the Cold War and other factors, the mission was only declassified at the beginning of 2013, 72 years after the fact.

A great read for anyone likes a good story about the dignity of human relationships. I would be honored if you would consider reading a copy of PROJECT ZEBRA. Roosevelt and Stalin’s Top-Secret Mission to Train 300 Soviet Airmen in America.
