Tuskegee’s historic love story

Herbert Carter, 94, one of the  original 33 Tuskegee Airmen pilots, holds a portrait of his wife,  Mildred Hemmon Carter, in her flight uniform. She was the first black  female pilot in Alabama and is counted among the history-making Tuskegee  Airmen, too. He eventually rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel.  Married nearly 70 years, the two were known as Tuskegee’s “first  couple.”
