Honoring the Tuskegee Airmen
Tuskegee AirmenIn 2007 President Bush Awarded the Tuskegee Airmen the Congressional Medal of Honor. In 2009 President Obama invited them to his inaugural address. And earlier this year George Lucas made a motion picture movie about them. Tomorrow Mayor Menino will do his part to honor these men. The city of Boston is dedicated a bridge to the Tuskegee Airmen, the African-American pilots who fought in World War II. We'll talk to one man whose father was a member of this elite bombardment squadron.

Guest:
  Charles E. Walker, son of a member of the Tuskegee 477th Bombardment Squadron
