Virginia Statehood and Remembering General Arnold

Today is Statehood Day for the Commonwealth of Virginia, the 10th state to join the Union in 1788.
 Today is also the birthday of General Henry Arnold, the only man to hold the rank of five-star general in two different services - the Army and the Air Force. He was taught how to fly by the Wright Brothers, and eventually founded the RAND Corporation and was one of the founders of Pan Am.
