Looks fairly radiant for being denied treatment for his syphilis a half century ago. Nothing like being told "you're fine, Mr. Warren, it's just a virus that'll work itself out in no time", when all along you got Al Caponeitis.

The Tuskeegee airmen sank the Bismark, shot down 50,000 Luftwaffe planes and killed Hitler personally. (not really)

Those flying apes were substandard pilots. But the tales of their accomplishments grow taller with each passing year. Hollywood just produced "Redtails" which is a complete work of fiction.

I remeber the Mexican Egales. I heard they were good pilots but couldn't spell worth a shit. They kept hitting the wrong targets in Gremany.
