Among the most iconic units to fight in WWII were the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of all-Black fighter and bomber units which proved that Black airmen were just as capable as their white counterparts.

#Armyhistory #USArmy
The leading edge of the Tuskegee Airmen was the 99th Fighter Squadron (originally the 99th Pursuit Squadron). The first of the U.S. Army Air Forces units collectively called the Tuskegee Airmen, the men of the 99th began training in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941.
Armed with P-40 Warhawks, the 99th shipped off to the Mediterranean Theater in APR 1943. Under the command of LTC Benjamin O. Davis Jr. (who went on to become the USAF’s first Black general), the 99th provided critical tactical combat support to U.S. Army operations. @TradocCG
