Tuskegee Airmen

The first group of Black military airmen, the Tuskegee Airmen, were trained to be pilots, navigators and bombardiers. Including the all-Black 332nd Fighter Group, these men aided America's victory in World War II by escorting bombers. One renowned airman, Charles McGee, graduated from the Tuskegee Airmen having flown over 400 missions.
