Tuskegee Airman Turns 77 today

19 March 2018

77 years ago today, the Famed “Tuskegee Airman” or special U.S. Army Air Corps Aviation Unit comprised solely of Americans, typically of African decent, was started.

While these men, at the time, could not sit and eat at lunch counters in most cities in the USA, they were sent to defend the Freedoms for all Americans regardless of their background, beliefs, or color of their skin.

They were Pioneers and fearless Aviators who proved that Courage & Aptitude is not limited to anyone class, creed, or even gender.

On a side-note, during this same-time, Women were prevented from flying in the U.S. Army Air Corps or U.S. Navy, yet many served in the Women’s Air Service Pilots (W.A.S.P.s) who served bravely, mostly in the the USA ferrying aircraft from factories to bases where they could be readied for their male counterparts to take into combat.

In closing, all served together as they were able despite their contemporary restrictions to win the war against the great evils of the Nazi & Axis allied empires.  This proved that Good can always win over evil given time, patience, and Faith.
