JBSA-Lackland Tuskegee Airmen exhibit open to the public

Chief Master Sgt. Richard West, U.S. Air Force Airman Heritage Museum & Enlisted Character Development Center director, leads a flight of Joint Base San Antonio Airmen on a performance tribute while wearing historic military uniforms during an unveiling ceremony for the Enlisted Tuskegee Airman Exhibit May 4, 2015, at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland’s U.S. Air Force Airman Heritage Museum & Enlisted Character Development Center. The unveiling ceremony honors the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American military ground support Airmen who were part of the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group during World War II. The exhibit, a three-dimensional recreation of a World War II combat operations room displaying an enlisted aircraft line mechanic, enlisted administrator and a Tuskegee fighter pilot, depicts the hard work, sacrifice and determination the Tuskegee Airmen put forth as members of the Army Air Corps to help America win World War II.
