Saluting Tuskegee Heros

Click Here to order the dvd

The Tuskegee Airmen--
the pilots from the first black
military aviation units,
the pilots who escorted bomber planes
during World War II. 
The story of their service
 has been told and retold. 
The Tuskegee Airmen—
 just doing
 their jobs during wartime.
The Tuskegee Airmen—
hundreds of years of bigotry.
The Tuskegee Airmen—
Still honored in aviation history.

OK, I cheated.  It is so frustrating when I’ve done the whole poem, and I just can’t make the last line make sense.  So I added the word “history”.  Call it poetic license.  After over 50 poems, I think I can be permitted to slip up once.
