Today's Red Tails see "Red Tails"

One of the very first military units in Afghanistan to see the “Red Tails” movie was the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing, the unit that today carries the heritage of the 332nd Fighter Group known as the Tuskegee Airmen. Another home for the Tuskegee Airman in World War II was the 477th Bombardment group. Here, you see Col. Paul Beineke, 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing commander, speaking to his unit, also called the Red Tails, prior to showing the movie at an undisclosed base. The movie was shown January 27.
