The Tuskegee Airmen were the first black servicemen to serve
as military aviators in the U.S. Armed Forces, flying with distinction during
World War II. Though subject to racial discrimination both at home and abroad,
the 996 pilots and more than 15,000 ground personnel who served with the all-black
units would be credited with some 15,500 combat sorties and earn over 150
distinguished flying crosses for their achievements. The highly publicized
successes of the Tuskegee Airmen helped pave the way for the eventual
integration of the U.S. Armed Forces under President Harry Truman in 1948.
