e-Connections Post C.K. McClatchy

Two members of the historic Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American pilots who fought in World War II, visited Air Force Junior ROTC and Humanities and International Studies Program students at C.K. McClatchy High School on March 20. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States armed forces. The airmen at CKM were George W. Porter, Walter M. Suggs and George S. “Spanky” Roberts. The veterans shared a glimpse of life during World War II, both during combat and after the war. Says Principal Peter Lambert: “It was truly a pleasure to have these national heroes on campus.”
