The Tuskegee Airmen were an all African-American unit of the US Army Air Corps (Air Force) in World War II. They flew fighter planes that escorted the US bomber planes in raids in Europe against German and other Axis targets. They were highly effective in giving close fighter support. In fact they are the only fighter unit that is credited with never having a bomber shot down that was in their protection.

Robin Roberts of the ABC's Good Morning America is the daughter of a Tuskegee Airman and featured her father on the show before he died. There were probably 2000 deaths recorded for the Tuskegee alone.
