First, I have to express how priviledged and honored i felt to shake the hand of a Tuskegee Airman.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Jefferson flew in the 332nd Fighter Group (FG) that were famed throughout World War Two. I will let you do the research yourselves. The Tuskegee Airmen Historical Museum at Moton Field, Tuskegee AL was dedicated to him, and the honor of those revered pilots that trained, served, and fought for the United States and the Allied Forces. The ceremony was amazing, and i was left with an inspiration after speaking with him:

You truly do not have to prove anything to anyone. You don't need anyone's validation. If you excel at your job, your actions will speak for themselves, but your value is not decided by anyone but you.

Simple, but true. 
This photo has notes. Move your mouse over the photo to see them.

BAFS: As a POW of the Nazis, Jefferson was treated as a human being and as an officer by the NAZIS, and even asked why he was serving in the army of the RACIST AMERICANS!!!!!!!
