Thank you for your amazing service, Lt. Colonel Brown. Rest now in eternal peace with all your amazing Tuskegee Airmen brothers. As a corporate pilot, in 2007 I flew some folks to the Gathering of Mustangs Airshow in Columbus, Ohio. Many of the surviving Tuskegee Airmen were honored at that event. Turns out I was staying in the same hotel as the Airmen. One evening I had the distinct honor and privilege of meeting and visiting with another Tuskegee Airman, Lt. Colonel Alexander Jefferson for over an hour. Like Col Brown, Alex was shot down toward the end of the war and was a German POW for several months. Needless to say, listening to his life story kept me on the edge of my seat. I purchased his book, "Red Tail captured, Red Tail free" that evening on the spot. Born November 15, 1921, Col Jefferson died on June 22, 2022 at the age of 100. Thank you for your service, Alex, and for sharing with me your amazing life.
