Scott's View: Black History Month 2022 & Military Veterans

Scott's View

With the start of Black History Month, we want to share with you one of our military's most famous stories of service,  the legendary Tuskegee Airmen of World War II.

In the face of great odds, they represent one of the most inspiring stories of World War II. Facing the challenges of persistent racism in the States, they found a shared passion for flight and performed with great courage, honor and success in the air battles of the European theatre. Like so many of our nation's World War II veterans, the Tuskegee Airmen are leaving us. One of their best-known, General Charles McGee, died last month at 102.

We must do our part to remember them. Today's story is a start. We’ll have more coverage each week on our blog during Black History Month.

A history of Arlington National Cemetery Military & Veterans Life Cover Story: History of Arlington National Cemetery Perfectly aligned white marble tombstones dot green hills like pearls, strung together by memories of fallen military members. That’s the sight at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, DC, which is the resting place for more than 400,000 veterans and their dependents over approximately 640 acres on the Potomac River. This Memorial Day we remember the fallen soldiers buried at Arlington and across the nation. And this Saturday Arlington hosts the inaugural Flowers of Remembrance Day, where the public can bring flowers to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to pay tribute to the sacrifice of so many veterans.
