If I agreed with you, then we'd both be wrong
I ran across this site, "Flying Tigers US" the other day and wondered if anyone else had seen or used it. It has a lot of photos of the Flying Tigers.

If any of you, more knowledgeable than I am about the AVG, could look at some of the stories on this site and tell me that some of the info they use looks like it comes out of the pr for the 14th AF.

Other things they say may seem minor, but as a whole, it seems like they got their info out of what the media usually puts out and we all know how inaccurate they can be.

Yes, I've been registered on that site for over a year now.  They have many photos and Brad Smith has sent in many of the photos from his dad.  There are various stories and you'll note that there are many subjects covered.  Lots of enthusiasm in covering and paying homage to the Tigers.  There are some errors, but the website owner is very receptive to corrections to set the story straight.

The main emphasis of that site is to honor the Tigers and to use this to inspire young people who have an interest in flight instruction.  Another group which honors the Tigers is the Living History Group which is found at:

Hey Brad.  Glad to see you joined up.  You're going to get the best, most accurate info here about the AVG.  These folks really know their history. 

Hey Tripp.  I'm glad to see you as a member of the Flying Tigers US site.  At first, I was a bit wary of it but if you're there, I know it's got to be a good site.  Lots of great pics.  I think I'll register there too.

www.avglivinghistorygroup.com has photos throughout site.  Go to events page.  We have followed the history of the AVG footsteps and have been to China, San Francisco and Los Angeles. :)

I have in my possession a flying tiger blood chit made out of leather sometime in the 40's in china, it was found about 60 or 70 years ago in a house in Glenwood Arkansas by my wife's granddad who dealt in real-estate back then. Does anyone have information that might lead me, to who may have left it there?

While it's certainly possible that the blood chit is from an 'original' Flying Tiger, the odds are against it. Only 254 'original' Flying Tigers. 20,000+ 'post' AVG 'tigers'.

I've got 2 blood chits.  One is embroidered on silk.  I'm sure it's a real chit but definitely post AVG.  I don't believe the Tigers had anything like that.  The other one has a 5 digit serial number and that is also definitely post AVG.  If you read the book The Story of the Blood Chit, it will give you some idea of the production numbers.
