Summary
Military officer Major Joseph Gomer served as a fighter pilot with World War II's famed Tuskegee Airmen. From the time he was a small boy, he dreamed of flying airplanes. When he enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1942, Gomer signed up for pilot training, and received his wings in May 1943. He was assigned as a second lieutenant to the segregated 332nd Fighter Group and sent to Ramitrella, Italy, to join the 301st Fighter Squadron. Gomer fought in more than sixty-eight sorties flights against the Germans. He crash-landed a P-39 and was bullet ridden in a P-47, Gomer stayed with the U.S. Air Force after the War when President Truman signed Executive Order 9981 integrating the United States Armed Forces.
