The Tuskegee airmen were the pinnacle of air combat in the 1940s through the end of World War Two, reacting to jim crow laws in the millitary, fighting both for victory at home and abroad. Not only were they key factors in the North African and Italian fronts of World War Two, but because of their efforts, will, strength, character, and determination, they opened up the millitary for 100% anti segregation laws. Because of the Airmen, the millitary was refomed desegregated, and opened up for people of all backgrounds and color.
"Our sucess made it possibele for the youth of today to be anything that they want to be. We proved, not only for us, but for all people, that anything was possible if you set your mind to it." - Joe Gomer, former tuskegee airman, feb. 20th 2012
