Tuskegee Airman answer the call again

Here is a neat story of some members of the original Tuskegee Airman traveling to Iraq to inspire current members of the 332nd Fighter Group.
Lt. Col. Herbert Carter is 86 years old and ready for deployment. More than 60 years after his World War II tour with the pioneering black pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen, Carter's new mission will be shorter, though no less courageous. Carter is one of seven aging Tuskegee Airmen traveling this weekend to Balad, Iraq _ a city ravaged by roadside bombs and insurgent activity _ to inspire a younger generation.
If you are unaware of the story of the Tuskegee Airman I would highly recommend reading "The Golden Thirteen" which tells their story.
