Will Rogers was America's spokesman for the new fledging mode of transportation, flying. Wiley Post was a piloting pioneer flying around the world twice and setting speed records. Both men died tragically in a small plane crash in 1935. Our National Day of Remembrance honors all those who have lost their lives in a small airplane crash. 

We now have a commemorative Lapel Pin that has a painting of Will in a flight jacket with one of his quotes, "She's a beautiful day and we are flying high."

The Lapel Pin is also for sale for $5 for anyone that would like to give it as a gift or own for yourself in honor of a friend or loved one.

We offer a FREE lapel pin to a family member who has lost a loved one in a small plane accident.  Please email us​ the name and information and we will send them a Pin.
