Ret. Lieutenant Colonels Eldridge Williams, 94 and Leo Gray, 87 (l-r), documented original Tuskegee Airmen, during their trip to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. Both men, along with Ret. Judge Richard Rutledge [not pictured] were all part of the original Tuskegee Experiment to see if Blacks could fly and fight in combat at the outset of WW II.
