Army Air Corps Staff Sgt. Leslie Edwards, a Tuskegee Airman of the 617th Bombardment Squadron visits Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska during October 2017 and shares his service history.
The 617th Bombardment Squadron was one of four Tuskegee Airmen bomber squadrons during World War II that made up the 477th Bombardment Group. In 2007, the 477th Bombardment Group became the 477th Fighter Group, bringing with it the legacy of Tuskegee airmen to Alaska.
