July 24th National Amelia Earhart Day

A number of years ago I was searching through a local barn and found all sorts of photos and letters to, and from, Amelia Earhart visiting a local doctor. It got me interested in what happened to her and why she disappeared on her historic flight before World War 2. Other than being a real party animal nothing I found added anything more than what everyone already knew. She, and her navigator Fred Noonan, seemed to have fallen off he face of the earth in their Lockheed Model 10 Electra, better known as “The Flying Laboratory”. From all I read my belief is, she wanted to just disappear. She was a tough woman who had already celebrated nearly everything she looked for in life. Amelia was born on July 24th, 1897 which is why today was chosen to celebrate her life.
