TUSKEGEE AIRMEN OMEGA OPEN Tournament Objectives

Since 1980, the Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. - George S. “Spanky” Roberts Chapter has raised and awarded nearly $160,000 in educational assistance funds to local youths in pursuit of higher education. The Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. organizations’ primary objective is to continue our tradition through fundraising activities to build our educational assistance funds and award these funds to worthy recipients in the years to come. We are pleased to welcome and thank the Del Paso Country Club in assisting, supporting and sharing our quest.


“TUSKEGEE EXPERIENCE” According to researcher and DOTA Theopolis W. Johnson, the following information relates to the “Tuskegee Experience”: “That is….anyone--man or woman, military or civilian, black or white--who served at Tuskegee Army Air Field or in any of the programs stemming from the ‘Tuskegee Experience’ between the years 1941 and 1949 is considered to be a documented original Tuskegee Airman (DOTA).” There were an estimated 16-19,000 persons in the above category of which 14,632 persons have been personally documented by Johnson. (As of 10/16/05) He also notes that: 927 – American pilot graduates 5 – Haitian pilot graduates 11 – Instructor pilot graduates 51 – Liaison pilot graduates Total pilot graduates: 994 (686 SE graduates and 248 TE graduates). [SE = Single Engine (fighter) and TE = Twin Engine (bomber)] There were 44 classes that graduated during the “Tuskegee Experience.” The first class (42-C-SE) graduated 5 SE pilots (including then Captain Benjamin O. Davis, Jr.) on March 7, 1942. The last class (Class 46-C) graduated with 8 SE graduates and 5 TE graduates on June 28, 1946. • 2,483 persons were pilot trainees at Moton Field and Tuskegee Army Air Field (AAF), located in Tuskegee, AL, from July 19, 1941 until June 28, 1946. • 994 pilots graduated from Tuskegee AAF. • Tuskegee AAF closed August 20, 1946. • Of the graduates, 450 pilots deployed overseas (Europe) for combat duty. • 84 Tuskegee Airmen were killed overseas during WWII. • 80 pilots lost their lives in combat, training, flying and non-flying accidents. • 68 pilots were identified as either KIA or MIA. • 12 pilots were killed overseas in training accidents or non-combat related incidents. • 32 pilots were downed or captured as POWs. • 4 enlisted persons were killed overseas while in the performance of their duties. • During WWII, the Tuskegee Airmen (then known as the “Red Tails”) flew: 1267 missions and 6381 combat sorties with the 12th Air Force (June 1943 to May 1944) 311 missions and 9152 combat sorties with the 15th Air Force (June 1944 to May 1945) Total Missions: 1578 Total Combat Sorties: 15,533 Total Aerial Kills: 112


The Tuskegee Airmen received the following combat awards: Presidential Unit Citation (3) Legion of Merit (1) [Col. Benjamin Davis, Jr.] Silver Star (1) [Col. Benjamin Davis, Jr.] Soldier Medal (1) Distinguished Flying Cross (150) Purple Heart (8)* Bronze Star (14) Air Medal (744) Red Star of Yugoslavia *Correct count pending

The 332nd Fighter Wing ceased all operations on June 1, 1949 (after President Harry Truman signed Executive Order #9981 on July 26, 1948, which desegregated the U.S. Armed Forces) at Lockbourne AFB, Columbus, OH and was deactivated, officially ending the “Tuskegee Experience.” NOTES: 1. The name “Tuskegee Airmen” came into existence on May 15, 1955 with the publication of “The Tuskegee Airmen--The Story of the Negro in the U.S. Air Force” by Charles E. Francis. Prior to that date, they were known as the “Red Tails.” 2. During WWII, 72 Tuskegee Airmen shot down 112 enemy aircraft, including the best of the German fighters. Three of the Tuskegee Airmen (Captain Joseph D. Elsberry, Captain Edward L. Toppins and 1st Lieutenant Lee A. Archer) each shot down four enemy planes. No Tuskegee Airman ever achieved “Ace” status (five kills required). 3. Despite contrary reports, the Tuskegee Airmen did lose several U.S. bombers to enemy fire while escorting the bombers. But it should be noted that they did have a “nearly perfect” record of not losing bombers, a unique achievement when compared to other American fighter units that escorted bombers. The then known “Red Tails” were in high demand for escort service by U.S. bomber crews because of their low loss record. 4. The “Tuskegee Experience” was originally called the “Tuskegee Experiment,” and was conducted by the U.S. War Department and the Army Air Corps from 1941-1949. It should not be confused with the “Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment,” which was conducted by the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) from 1932-1972. Both events occurred in Tuskegee, AL at different locations. ***Above data prepared by Ron Brewington, Immediate Past National Public Relations Officer, Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. (TAI)***

OMEGA PSI PHI Since 1911 Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was founded on November 17, 1911 by three Howard University undergraduate students; Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper and Frank Coleman with the assistance of their faculty adviser, biology professor Ernest E. Just. Omega Psi Phi Fraternity is the first black fraternity founded at a historically black college, now Howard University. The initials of the Greek phrase meaning “friendship is essential to the soul,” is where the name Omega Psi Phi was derived. The phrase was selected as the motto. Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift were adopted as cardinal principles. Bro. Dr. Carter G. Woodson inspired the establishment of National Achievement Week to promote the study of Negro life and history. In 1949, the first National Headquarters Building at 107 Rhode Island Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. was purchased and the scholarship fund was renamed the Charles R. Drew Memorial Scholarship Fund. Since the fraternity’s inception, thousands of Omega men in every area of the country have been actively involved in the struggle for social justice, fighting to eliminate racial discrimination. Omega has continued to flourish, largely because Founders Love, Cooper, Coleman and Just were men of the very highest ideals and intellect. The Founders selected and attracted men of similar ideals and characteristics. It is not by accident that many of America’s great black men are/were Omega Men. To this date, there are very few Americans whose lives have not been touched by a member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. Omega has a rich heritage to be protected, celebrated and enhanced!

Howard Hall (left) is the oldest extant building on Howard University’s campus. Originally the home of Oliver Otis Howard, the Civil War General and Founder of Howard University, it was completed in 1869 as one of the first four buildings on campus. Howard Hall was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974. Restoration of the house was completed in 1998 and it now serves as the University’s Alumni Center. Frederick Douglass Memorial Hall, a national historic landmark (pictured at right), is named in honor of Frederick Douglass, the revered abolitionist and past trustee and active participant of the University. The building was the product of the acclaimed African-American architect of the 20th century, Albert Cassell.

The TUSKEGEE AIRMEN OMEGA OPEN on May 10th precedes the Sectional Qualifying Tournament at Del Paso Country Club on June 7th, leading up to the 2010 US OPEN on June 14th-20th at Pebble Beach.

Del Paso Country Club in Sacramento, California was selected as one of the 13 sites nationally, and the only in California, to host a sectional qualifying tournament for the 2010 U.S. Open Championship. It is estimated that the sectional qualifying tourney at Del Paso Country Club on June 7, 2010, could attract up to 100 golfers and perhaps 2,500 spectators, according to Del Paso head pro Mike Green. Golfers will be trying to qualify for the June 14-20, 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach on the 36-hole tourney. The U.S. Open has two levels of qualifiers — locals and sectionals. The U.S. Golf Association, the sport’s national governing body, asked Del Paso Country Club to host the sectional qualifying tournament because organizers liked the job Del Paso did in 2008 with hosting the local qualifier, Green said. Del Paso, which re-opened July 2006 after a $10 million renovation, attracted more than 1,500 people to the 2008 local qualifier, which is more than any other host of a local qualifier, he said. Del Paso Country Club has held major championships, such as the U.S. Women’s Open in 1982. Founded in 1916, Del Paso is located at 3333 Marconi Ave. in Sacramento’s Arden-Arcade area.
