The Oldest Living Tuskegee Airman is Honored with a Congressional Medal of Honor

The oldest living Tuskegee airman in the United States has been honored.  He had to wait until he was 97 years old, but he is finally being recognized for his heroics during World War II.

Brew Graham of Georgia has been given the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest award given by the president and Congress.  This is a new thing for Graham, since he has not been recognized in previous ceremonies for the airmen.

The release of the film “Red Tails” allowed Graham to get the recognition he deserved after his wife Evelyn reached out to have her husband honored.
