2021 P Tuskegee Airmen USA National Parks Quarter Uncirculated (MS-60)

The Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site in Alabama commemorates the heroic actions and achievements of the famous Tuskegee Airmen. The term “Tuskegee Airmen” pertains to both men and women of diverse nationalities. They were composed of nearly 1,000 pilots and more than 15,000 support staff (including navigators, bombardiers, and mechanics). The site preserves five historic structures used during primary flight training in World War II.

The Tuskegee Airmen Historical Park quarter is the final US National Park Quarter and 56th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.

Located at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, the Tuskagee Airmen National Historical Site was established as a primary pilot training facility for pioneering airmen during World War II. Prior to 1940, African-American's were barred from flying for the US Military, until civil rights organizations rallied against this injustice. These efforts resulted in the creation of a racially diverse squadron known as the Tuskegee Airmen in 1941. This group included: Native Americans, African Americans, Caribbean islanders, Latinos, Caucasians and more. The training facility at Moton Field was apart of the Army Air Corps initiative in training these individuals to pilot and maintain combat within an aircraft. However, there were also other skills and specialties among the Tuskagee Airmen: technicians, radio operators, medical personnel, quartermasters, parachute riggers, mechanics, bombardiers, navigators, meteorologists, control tower operators, dispatchers, and more. The Tuskegee Airmen not only fought the war in War World II but also, against a war against racism in America and gained victory in both wars.

Today, the park seeks to engage visitors in exploring how the Tuskegee Airmen bravely fought war not only abroad but also, on their own soil.

The reverse (tails) design depicts a Tuskegee Airman pilot suiting up to join the fight during World War II with the Moton Field control tower in the background. The pilot looks upward with pride and confidence as two P-51 Mustangs pass overhead. The inscription “THEY FOUGHT TWO WARS” is arced across the top as a reference to the dual battles the Tuskegee Airmen fought–fascism abroad and racial discrimination at home.
