46TH AVIATION SQUADRON STUDENTS: In January 1943, 330 African American servicemen assigned to the 46th Aviation Squadron entered the Radio School, and in May 1943, they graduated ready to help Tuskegee Airmen fly. These radio school graduates were a part of a bigger initiative of the Army Air Forces Technical Training Command to supply African American flying squadrons with sufficient support personnel, including supply, adjutant, intelligence, and statistical officers.
