Section of I-95 in S.C. dedicated to Tuskegee Airmen

Posted: July 24, 2011 - 8:50pm

By The Associated Press

WALTERBORO, S.C. — A stretch of Interstate 95 near Walterboro is being dedicated in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen, the nation’s first black Army airmen.
Tuskegee Memorial Highway signs are being unveiled Sunday at the Colleton County Courthouse.
The airmen who became pilots during World War II received their flight training at the Tuskegee Army Air Field in Tuskegee, Alabama.
They also received their combat training at several army air bases along the East Coast, including what was then the Walterboro Army Airfield.
That field is now the Lowcountry Regional Airport in Walterboro.

Old news, but mad props to the state of Kentucky for renaming all 191 miles of I-75 the "Tuskegee Airmen Memorial Trail" in 2010.
