Today In U.S. Military History

The first Air Cadets from Tuskegee were graduated today to begin the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen. These men formd the core of the new 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bomb Group.  Throughout the war the Red Tails of the 332nd provided escort and fighter bomber action in the Southern European theatre destroying 112 enemy aircraft in the air.
The 99th legacy lives on with the 99th Training Squadron at Randolph AFB, TX.
