Tuskegee Airman George W. Watson, Sr. Watson, now a retired Air Force sergeant and author, will share his story Friday night as a featured speaker during the John W. Davison Lecture Series. His book, "Memorable Memoirs" will be available for purchase and he will sign copies after the presentation.
Watson volunteered to serve in the U. S. Army in 1942. He served overseas in Germany, England, Turkey and Iran; then retired after 26 years of service.
Despite their bravery and accomplishments, the Tuskegee Airmen battled racism and bigotry at home. Don't miss Watson's story - 7 p.m. Friday, Feb 8 in the C.W. Pettigrew Center auditorium. Proceeds from the book sales will go toward scholarships and elementary schools in Watson’s hometown.
