Memorial Day Parade

In Food by RUNINdc

Lt. Col. James H. Harvey III, 98, one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, lead the National Memorial Day Parade as the Grand Marshall.

Harvey, a decorated Korean War aviator served as a pilot along with three other Tuskegee Airmen in the military’s first top gun style competition back in 1949.

His team took the top spot in the propeller competition — but they weren’t recognized until the 1990s, an honor long overdue.
