The North Salem Republican Town Committee celebrates Black History month. The Tuskegee Airmen who were also known as the Freedom Flyers, fought Nazism overseas while still facing segregation and adversity in United States.  ”The Tuskegee Airmen were the first Black military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps (AAC), a precursor of the U.S. Air Force. Trained at the Tuskegee Army Air Field in Alabama, they flew more than 15,000 individual sorties in Europe and North Africa during World War II. Their impressive performance earned them more than 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and helped encourage the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces” (History.com).
