Date: February 12th
Location: Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center Annex
In May of 1949, the US Military was still segregated. The U.S. Air Force held the first Gunnery Meet in Las Vegas NV, where five “fighter groups” sent their best pilots and crews to compete, including the all African American 332nd Tuskegee Airmen fighter group. Come hear the details of this little known and fascinating story presented by Howard and Richard Baugh, two sons of decorated WWII fighter pilot Lt. Col. Howard Lee Baugh.
