Arizonan Tuskegee Airmen

"Red Tails"

The Tuskegee Airmen set the precedent African-Americans could excel in military aviation. What began as a shocking idea with many naysayers, the Tuskegee program quickly provided thousands of men and women to serve in combat overseas and in support programs at U.S. bases. The sacrifice, service and success of the Tuskegee Airmen, of which many Arizonans were a part, directly contributed to victory in Europe. Thousands left home to serve, many died in combat and many faced continual prejudice. Yet they flew over 15,000 sorties, destroyed or damaged over 400 enemy aircraft and supported front line needs from their U.S. bases for the duration.     April 2015
