The first African-American military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps were known as the Tuskegee Airmen, after the Tuskegee Army Air Field where they trained. The group flew over 15,000 individual sorties during World War II which earned them over 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses.  
1944 · The G.I Bill

Age 25

The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.

Name Meaning

In Hebrew, the scriptural name is Hébhel, which has been translated as "vanity or vapor" and as "breath." The son of Adam perhaps received the name due to the shortness of his life; however, he had this name from his birth.
