WWII's Tuskegee Airmen Invited to Inauguration

WASHINGTON - The Tuskegee Airmen, who made history during World War II as the country's first black military pilots only to return home to discrimination and exclusion from victory parades, have been invited to Barack Obama's inauguration.

"I want to come hopping, skipping and jumping!" said 92-year-old Spann Watson, an airman from Westbury, N.Y. who flew above Pennsylvania Avenue for President Truman's inauguration. "We had a part in changing these United States."

John L. Harrison Jr. an original airman now in his 80s, also said he plans to attend Barack Obama's inauguration.

"It makes us very very proud," said Harrison, of Philadelphia. "And it sort of compensates for a lot of the things that we had to endure in the early days."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., sent the invitation Tuesday to Tuskegee Airmen Inc. The Arlington, Va.-based organization represents 330 of the original pilots, whose ranks were once about 1,000.

"We believe that it is appropriate to honor these members of the greatest generation who overcame enormous racial barriers to serve their nation," Feinstein said in a statement.

The Tuskegee Airmen were recruited into an Army Air Corps program that trained blacks to fly and maintain combat aircraft. They trained as a segregated unit at an air base in Tuskegee, Ala.

After fighting the Nazis, they returned home to face discrimination. Watson, the New York airman, said blacks weren't allowed to participate in victory parades with other troops returning from Europe during World War II.

"We were excluded out of everything and hidden from everything," he said. "Now this time is our time, and to have a black man as the elected president, this is indeed a turn in history."

Each member will receive two tickets to the Jan. 20 inauguration, and they have 10 days to decide if they will attend.

Carole Florman, a spokeswoman for the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, said the airmen's seating assignment has not been decided, but it will be within the ticketed viewing area around the U.S. Capitol.

Robert Rose, first vice president of Tuskegee Airmen, said he believes the last time the airmen were officially invited to an inauguration as a group was for Truman's swearing-in 1949.

Rose, speaking from his home in Bellevue, Neb., said his local chapters are contacting airmen. Most are in their late 80s and early 90s, making travel difficult. The logistics involved, such as finding increasingly expensive and scarce hotel rooms, also may prevent some from showing up.

I recently got a promotion with Marriott and will be starting my new role next month. Considering that the DC Metro Area is ranked #1 for the Worst Traffic in America, I'm fortunate to be able to work from home. In the case that I have to commute and check into the office, it will be down this hall and to the right. For now, it's vacation until the 6th of June : )
