One of the surviving Tuskegee Airmen live in my town. Pretty cool!

Recommended Posts

This gentleman has been a pillar in our community for many years, and my grandfather served with him while he was stationed here at Vandenberg Air Force Base working on ICBM's. I didn't realize, however, that he was a Tuskegee Airman. The local news did a neat little story on him today. Very cool!

At one point he was a teacher at my high school and at the junior college I attended, but it was way before I was a student at those places.
