A Flying Tiger's legacy

From the New York Times yesterday, a story about a Flying Tiger's legacy:

Evidently the dive center is a startling sight amidst the Georgia pine barrens, or so I visualize them:

The unlikely sight, about 200 miles southwest of Atlanta, is home to the Moss Farms Diving Tigers — perhaps the country’s most improbable diving powerhouse.

Started in the 1960s by Robert Moss, a local farmer known as Moose who dug a pool on his own 2,000 acres so his children could dive, this out-of-the-way program is often compared to the build-it-and-they-will-come theme from “Field of Dreams.”
The farmer in question is the late Moose Moose of the American Volunteer Group's 2nd Squadron Panda Bears. Read the story. It's a good one. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
