They fought bravely for a country that hated, feared and
despised them. After giving their all and making in some cases, the ultimate
sacrifice, they returned to Lynching, Jim Crow and outright hatred. Their feats
of bravery put lie to the notion that African-Americans did not have what it
took to be air force pilots. Their list of accomplishments as a group and
individually is long and storied, and I hope they are never forgotten.
