Background: This tribute workout is dedicated to Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American and Caribbean-born military pilots who fought in World War II. They were the first black military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps (AAC), a precursor of the U.S. Air Force.

Trained at the Tuskegee Army Air Field in Alabama, they flew more than 15,000 individual sorties in Europe and North Africa during World War II. Their impressive performance earned them more than 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and helped encourage the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces.

This workout is part of a series of African-American History WODs from Granite City Community Fitness @granitecitycommunityfitness (Waite Park, MN, USA).
