VETERANS DAY... Honor to all who serve flag and countery

"A colorized photo of the Tuskegee Airmen, 332nd Fighter group, Ramitelli, Italy-1945."

The Tuskegee Airmen were the first black military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps (AAC), a precursor of the U.S. Air Force. Trained at Tuskegee Army Air Field in Alabama, they flew more than 15,000 individual sorties in Europe and North Africa during World War II. Their impressive performance earned them more than 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and helped encourage the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces.
