TUSKEGEE AIRMEN-The history of this Fighter Gunnery Competition is told in “The Last Hurrah” by Harry T. Stewart, Jr. who was one of the pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group participating in the competition. After the 332nd Fighter Group won the competition...the Record and Trophy were mysteriously lost until Mr. Stewart began to research why each and every year the Air Force Almanac listed the winner of the 1949 Fighter Gunnery Competition (i.e., the U. S. Air Force's very first "Top Gun Competition") as unknown.The record was corrected in 1995, however the trophy remained missing until 2004, when it was discovered in a storage room at the United States Air Force Museum.(Please transfer any Tuskegee Airmen you have to the Cemetery Manager--->
