African American History Month Part 1: Maj. Charles B. Hall
Maj. Charles B. Hall is the first African American to earn the Distinguished Flying Cross and the first African American to earn official credit for destroying an enemy aircraft in World War II. He was among the first 43 African-American volunteer pilots of the Tuskegee Airmen and 99th Pursuit Squadron. The 137th Air Refueling Wing is highlighting the African-American Airmen who have helped to advance the U.S. Air Force, the Air National Guard and the 137th Air Refueling Wing in a four-part series as part of African American History Month.
