Father and Son
This African American was the first African American General in the regular army and in the US Armed Forces. As one of America’s military pioneers, he retired after 50 years of service in the Army in 1948, one year after the Air Force separated from the Army Air Corps.
Throughout his military career, the general pushed for racial integration. The year he retired, President Harry S. Truman issued an order banning discrimination in the armed services. His son later became the Air Force’s first African-American general and commander of The Tuskegee Airmen.
