Default Lt. Col Herbert Eugene Carter Tuskegee airman

Original member of the Tuskegee Airmen dies


TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) Tuskegee city officials say Lt. Col. Herbert Eugene Carter, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen, has died.

Tuskegee Mayor Johnny Ford said Carter died Thursday afternoon at East Alabama Medical Center.

Carter flew 77 missions and crashed landed only once. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first black aviators in the U.S. military. They were trained in Alabama at the Tuskegee Institute, now Tuskegee University, as a segregated unit during World War II.

May God bless his family and legacy. May his memory and the hurdles and sacrafices he and the other Tuskegee Airmen made be remembered.

We are losing too many WW2 vets. I dread the day when there are no more
