WAVE Country paused Friday to Honor an American hero. Corporal Frank Weaver was a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, a group of all African-American military pilots and ground crew members, who served in World War II.
When we talk about World War II, most of us know about the Enola Gay d ropping the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. We know about the Jews in Germany and how they struggled, and millions died. We know something about the Battle of the Bulge. But there are some consequences from the war that for some are just coming to light.
