What a heart-warming story about Claude Platte and the Tuskegee Airmen. I think these men are true patriots. To be willing to fight and even die for a country which treated them so shabbily just boggles the mind. (See: “Racism had a silver lining for local airman,” Aug. 9)

We should be eternally grateful to have had these heroes walk among us. I saw Red Tails, the film about them, and look forward to seeing the exhibit, The Test.

Thank you, reporter Mitch Mitchell, for a wonderful story.
