The Tuskegee Airmen Memorial on the grounds of Colleton County’s Lowcountry Regional Airport commemorates the heroism of the determined young men who enlisted in World War II to become America’s first black military airmen. Before being sent into action, the now famous Tuskegee Airmen received their final months of combat training here, at what was then the Walterboro Army Airfield.
