Charles Alfred Anderson, the chief flight instructor of the aviation school of Tuskegee Institute in Alabama during World War II, has been honored by the U.S. Postal Service. “Chief” Anderson appears on a new 70-cent stamp that was unveiled recently at the Tuskegee Airman National Historical Site at Moton Field in Tuskegee.
Anderson spent 56 years as a member of the Tuskegee community before his death in 1996. His son, Charles Anderson, was present at the ceremony unveiling the new stamp.
