My father was an Army Air Corps officer in WWII. He commanded, at one time in the early forties, a support company at Dow Field in Bangor, Maine. Among the other members of his unit, he described to me a private soldier, and older fellow named Hubert Julian "The Black Eagle", who'd been an aviation pioneer but was cast aside by the army because he was black. Dad thought that a great injustice and because of his experiences with these men, had no use for racists. Dad is still alive and recently turned eighty-nine.
