Sole surviving member of the 447th Bombardment Group, Tuskegee Airman Army Air Corps Staff Sgt. Leslie Edwards Jr. visited Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Oct. 14, 2017 to see
first-hand the United States Air Force's capabilities of air power and how it's evolved. The 617th Bombardment Squadron was one of four Tuskegee Airmen bomber squadrons during World War II that made up the 477th Bombardment Group. In 2007, the 477th Bombardment Group became the 477th Fighter Group, bringing with it the legacy of Tuskegee airmen to Alaska.
