Profile America - Tuskegee Airman

WASHINGTON -  One group of veterans is getting well-deserved, belated recognition for its exploits in World War II.  The surviving pilots and ground crewmen of the noted Tuskegee Airmen were invited guests at President Obama's inauguration, and George Lucas is working on a movie about the African-American squadron, called "Red Tails." The pioneering unit fought in North AfricaSicily, and Europe as the 332nd fighter group.  They shot down more than 100 Luftwaffe aircraft and were awarded two distinguished unit citations, as well as many individual medals.  Among the nation's nearly 22 million veterans, 2.3 million are African-American.
