    Tuskegee Airman, Milton Williams

    Chicago, IL

    The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 marked the day the United States entered into World War II. During the same year the Tuskegee Experience began with the activation of U.S. Army Air Corps 99th Pursuit Squadron. In total there were 44 classes of graduates during the Tuskegee Experience. The first 5 Single Engine pilots graduated on March 7, 1942. This year we continue honoring the 75th Anniversary of the Tuskegee Airmen history. Renowned artist Michelle Rouch, member of the American Society of Aviation Artists, recognizes one member of the legendary Tuskegee Airman Milton Williams, a red tail wingman of Dr. Roscoe Brown and a WWII hero. Mr. Kenneth Rapier, President of Chicago "DODO" Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen will officially unveil the watercolor and graphite painting on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at Sinha’s, Chicago, Illinois. Milton Williams lives in the Chicago area and invites his friends and family. The artwork offers a heartfelt thank you to Milton Williams and his bravery and tireless dedication to prove to society his undeniable patriotism and dedication to the United States. Rouch’s artwork illuminates the pilot’s glory days during WWII. The original piece is titled “My Hero.” More information on the Chicago "DODO" Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen, go to www.taichicago.org.
