Summary Of the Tuskegee Airmen

Summary Of the Tuskegee Airmen | Tuskegee Airman In World War 2 | Scoop.it
Dondre Kimbley's insight:


Tuskegee Airmen were some educated and dedicated young men. They had volunteered to be Americas first black military airmen. The road for them was very rough, lots of them were not allowed to become airmen. They had to meet the qualifications mentally and physically. From 1941-1946 1000 pilots were trained at Tuskegee, which was in Europe Russia and Asia. People would spend over half they day everyday in a wooden chair to train mentally to be a Tuskegee airman. They were really dedicated to what they had put their minds to do.

The Tuskegee Airmen did not have it easy at all. They were very determined throughout the process and training. For example in 1917 they tried go just become aerial observers and got denied because of their race and others thought they were not capable for the duties. This did not stop them they kept working and now look at them down in history as the first ever-black military airmen.

Franklin D Roosevelt did not like this at all about them being denied because of their race. He had felt there should be no discrimination in jobs or the line of defense, especially if you are capable of performing the job/task. So to demand equality through everyone he wrote a letter saying there will be no discrimination through evidence of available and need men not being able to get the employment because of their culture, race or creed.

            So thanks to their hard determination and President Franklin D. Roosevelt the Tuskegee Airmen went down in history as the first ever black aerial military men. Also as some of the best ever military men.

Dondre Kimbley's insight:

This document was about the Tuskegee Airmen in combat. The 99th squadron was to me the biggest of all squadrons of the airmen. The 99th squadron was sent to North Africa in April of 1943. They were soon joined by the 100th, 301st, and 302nd squadron closely followed. Together these airmen created the 332nd squadron of airmen.The Tuskegee airmen were very successful and were known as highly disciplined and highly capable fighters for their achievements.

I would not include all this in my essay I would only include where they were from and a few other thing but I feel on some of these things I would find something that goes more into details rather than just telling me a little about it.

Dondre Kimbley's insight:

This Document was created because they wanted to help inform you and others about Tuskegee Airmen in history. To become one is not easy at all it takes lots of training to get right for this. Not only physical training is beneficiary but mental training also. You would spend almost over half your time in a wooden chair in a classroom everyday. They were some of the first ever black fighter pilots that had to be a good athlete mathmatician scientist and know their history.

This document was an actual letter from the President Franklin D Roosevelt. He had felt there should be no discrimination in jobs or the line of defense, if they are capable for the job. He felt no matter your race or culture everyone should be equal. So he wrote this letter to demand equality for everyone. He had found out that there was discrimination through evidence of available and needed men not being able to get the employment because of their race, creed or national origin.

The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States armed forces. During World War II, African Americans in many U.S. states were still subject to the Jim Crow laws and the American military was racially segregated, as was much of the federal government.

The Tuskegee airmen did not have it easy at all. They were very determined young men all throughout this process. For example in 1917 they tried to just become aerial observers and got denied. But that did not make them just give up they kept working and stayed dedicated now loo at them going down In history as some of the best ever
