So. Fla. honors military heroes
MIAMI (WSVN) -- South Florida honored legendary military heroes Saturday.
The Freedom Veterans of America hosted ten of the original Tuskegee airmen Saturday for Armed Forces Day.
More than 1,500 veterans and guests attended the event.
Current military heroes got the chance to shake hands and speak to the World War II veterans. "To just be able to see the out pour of love and appreciation for what has been done," said Tuskegee Airman Walt Richardson, "and not forgetting that we served in one of the greatest nations on the planet."
The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces.
