  1. "They didn't change the training standards, and that was a plus for us." There is a lesson in that. (1:22) This should be considered as we consider education standards around the country. My dad was in WW2, in the Army, and later the Air Corps. Those guys, of any race, were the best and they saved the western world from fascism. The free world owes a debt of gratitude to the Tuskegee Airmen.

  2. A family friend piloted B-24’s out of North Africa and later on Italy. He stated his group often asked for these airmen to be their escorts. On one mission his bomber was shot up pretty well. His gunners were shot up as well and did not have much of a chance to shoot back if attacked. Due to their mechanical issues they slowly dropped out of the return flight. That was not a good place to be as the stragglers were easy to pick off. They feared the worst when two Tuskegee Airmen pulled up next to them. They could not communicate in that his radios were gone, but these two guys stayed with them most all the way home. They made it home and he gives all the credit to these two men, men he never knew and never met.
