TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) - They flew their way into history and now they're landing back at Moton Air Field. The famed Tuskegee Airmen are being honored with a new national historic site.
The site highlights the airmen's heroic actions during World War II.
The all-black unit helped lead to integration of the armed forces and their record, well, there's none like it.
The soldiers never lost a single bomber that was being escorted by them. That is a record unmatched by any other fighter group.
In 2007 the airmen received the highest military award, the Congressional Gold Medal.
The elite airmen began their training in Tuskegee in 1941.
