Tuskegee Airmen fought racism at home while defending America abroad in World War II

By Newt Gingrich (original source Fox News)

“At his State of the Union address Feb. 4, President Trump honored Brig. Gen. Charles McGee, one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. McGee, who recently turned 100, flew more than 130 combat missions in World War II before serving his country in both Korea and Vietnam.

In total, McGee flew 409 combat missions in those three wars – an astounding figure. As President Trump said, ‘Gen. McGee, our nation salutes you.’

I was inspired by the general and thought we should devote this week’s episode of ‘Newt’s World’ to the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American pilots who fought in World War II. They were part of the U.S. Army Air Forces, serving valiantly in battle.”
