The U.S. Postal Service will issue a new stamp honoring the head instructor for the famous Tuskegee Airmen who were the first black military pilots who fought in World War II.
The stamp will commemorate Charles Alfred Anderson, and will be unveiled on March 13 at a ceremony in Anderson's hometown of Bryn Mawr, PA.
Anderson became the first African American to earn a commercial pilot's license in 1932. He went on to teach aviation at the Tuskegee Institute in AL.
The stamp notes Anderson's affectionate nickname of "Chief," which is what his students called him.
Charles Anderson died in 1996 at the age of 89-years-old. He was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame last year.
