TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) -- Tuskegee city officials say Lt. Col. Herbert Eugene Carter, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen, has died.
Tuskegee Mayor Johnny Ford said Carter died Thursday afternoon at East Alabama Medical Center.
Carter flew 77 missions and crashed landed only once. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first black aviators in the U.S. military. They were trained in Alabama at the Tuskegee Institute, now Tuskegee University, as a segregated unit during World War II.
Ford said he's ordered all U.S. flags in Tuskegee to be flown at half-mast.
Faith doesn’t turn a blind eye to what’s difficult, ugly, or even impossible. Faith accepts those things straight-on and then looks deeper.
Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14
In our church on the second Sunday of Advent, we light a candle to symbolize faith. Like early believers, who clung to the prophets’ promises of a coming Messiah, we testify to our faith that He is here. He is with us when things are good, and He is with us when we suffer loss. Through the long, dark days of winter, faith in Jesus means we trust that spring will come again.
