Tuskegee Airmen

Members of the JBSA-Randolph community listen to Mr. Thomas M. Ellis, documented original Tuskegee Airmen, speak about his time serving with the Tuskegee Airmen during the Tuskegee Airmen Tribute, June 12, 2015, at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph’s Parr Club. Members of the JBSA-Randolph community celebrated the legacy of the first all-black unit by paying tribute to seven of the documented original Tuskegee Airmen members. The Tuskegee Airmen distinguished themselves during World War II with more than 15,500 sorties and 1,500 missions in Europe and North Africa and earned numerous combat awards. The event featured musical entertainment, comments by 12th Flying Training Wing leaders, an introduction of four Tuskegee Airmen present and a presentation of gifts to them. Members of the audience had an opportunity to mingle with the Tuskegee Airmen and listen to their stories. (U.S. Air Force photo by Johnny Saldivar/released)
