This article informs that Airmen from the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing at Balad Air Bose, Iraq, proudly trace their heritage to a group of pioneers who faced and overcame circumstances of their own, the Tuskegee Airmen. The similarity of obstacles the people in this country face in building this nation are not lost on the Air Force leaders at Balad whose primary job is staff judge advocate. In front of the wing headquarters is a concrete barrier the unit brought when it moved to Balad from Tallil Air Base, Iraq, in February, 2004. The barrier depicts the historic link between Balad and the Red Tail Flyers, as the Tuskegee Airmen were known due to the crimson paint scheme on their aircraft's tails.
