The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African American military aviators in the United States armed forces during WWII.
Back then the US military was racially segregated, you know, like most of America, but despite these adversities they trained hard and flew with pride.
I won’t give you a history lesson today, however, if you aren’t familiar with the story behind these courageous young men I urge you to visit your local library and check out a copy of Red Tails Black Wings by John B. Holway or something similar.
These cats had style.
