The Tuskegee airmen were the first black servicemen to serve as military aviators in the U.S. armed forces and they flew with distinction during World War II. Though subject to racial discrimination both at home and abroad, the Tuskegee Airmen were prized and respected in the Army Air Force for their success in closely protecting Allied bombers flying missions into enemy territories. The 996 pilots and more than 15,000 ground personnel who served with the all-black units would be credited with some 15,500 combat missions and earn over 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses for their achievements. The successes of the Tuskegee Airmen helped pave the way for the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces in 1948.
