Major George ‘Spanky’ Roberts

On this day March 7,1942 Major George ‘Spanky’ Roberts completed his aviator training becoming one of the first 5 Tuskegee Airmen. He flew more than 100 successful combat missions for this country. During World War II the Tuskegee fighter pilots served as escorts for the bombers, they are credited with having among the most successful fighter squadrons in history. More than 1000 black pilots were trained at Tuskegee and it is the opinion of this writer that the war could never have been won without those black aviators. This has been a Breath of My Ancestors Minute w/Ty Gray-EL…We Must Never Forget
