When he was accepted he said, “As black scientists and engineers and aviators, we had to prove that black people could excel.” Bluford joined the Airforce and got many different jobs working for the air force. He was awarded for being heroic and received all kinds of great appreciation. Bluford protested being heroic. He says it is his duty and honor to fight for his home and all he worked for. Background, Career in Space, and accomplishments after awards are much simpler ways for future African American Astronauts to take that were inspired by Guion Bluford (Guy).
As same with Augustus Ceaser, he also had many wars that he was successful in. Bravery and courage are one of the similar characteristics being equal between them, as they both fought for themselves and the people of Rome.

America, land of the free, home of the brave. The great red, white and blue striped flag has only been waving in the sky for about 242 years. This wonderful country has only been born not too long ago. That is why Americas' history is so well tracked. It would not take long to research and learn about what has gone down on American soil; but for most of the country's history white men have been leading the way with their guns held high and their flags waving.
Edward Reed, the nephew of Bill Reed, wrote a biography for Reed saying, “An excellent student and outstanding athlete, Bill graduated high school in 1935 and with honors from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa, in 1939. He earned varsity letters in football and baseball and was a very fine golfer as well” (Reed). Bill was a family man, loving no one more than his mother. He hadn’t much experience of the outside world, coming from such a rural place; however, with his apt mind and physical physique, he was ready to challenge the world in any way possible. His morals outmatched a man twice his age, which in turn changed the course of history.
His legacy is in hope he offered to millions of black Americans and the enlightenment of others.” Jackie took large steps for not only baseball but for America.

Character is defined in the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language as “Moral or Ethical Strength; Integrity; fortitude. Tony Dungy is known as the first African American to win the super bowl as a coach. He is also known as a man with outstanding and excellent character. This paper will reflect on Tony’s exceptional character and how he has relied on his values and high morals to achieve goals that many thought were unreachable goals. Tony attributes a lot of his success in the world of football to the importance he placed on character and how much the people he surrounded himself with were likeminded.
His speech was so amazing and he had such great traits that he ended up convincing 120 mutineers to go into battle with him. Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain provoked a decision for the mutineers that they probably would never have done if they didn’t hear his speech. After Chamberlain’s powerful speech he had convinced all but 6 of 120 men to rejoin the battle and fight alongside Chamberlain himself and help out the North in their battle. In the text on page 8 of Killer Angels it states, “ It is the idea that we all have value, you and me, we’re worth something more than the dirt”(Shaara 8). This reveals that all of the mutineers have a purpose no matter where they came from.
Several years later his body was moved to a much larger cemetery. In 1924, one of his brothers had his body moved for the third time to another the Fnvaliden cemetery in Berlin, Germany. This courageous man was respected by not only his home country, but all of his enemies and will forever be remembered as a true war hero. The Red Baron's name and likeness have been represented in countless books, movies, songs, and television programs with one of the most memorable ones being Snoopy's fictional enemy. Manfred von Richthofen will forever be the most famous fighter pilot ace of World War One and as he famously said, "Fight on and fly on to the last drop of blood and the last drop of fuel, to the last beat of the
In the United States of America, we all are familiar with the highly recognized and decorated White American Astronauts John Glen who contributed to America’s aeronautics and space program during its inception in 1958. However, until recently, most Americans were unaware that the masterminds behind one of the most significant event in our history were African-American women. The New York Times bestselling author, Margot Lee Shetterly documented this hidden truth to enlighten all Americans about the emergence and success of America’s aeronautics and space program. The purpose of Shetterly's book “Hidden Figures” was to bring to the forefront another hidden truth about African-American History and our significant contributions to American
According to “1942 Army Air Forces photo shows the first African American pilots in the history of the U.S” it states, “In 1942, these men graduated from a training class at Tuskegee Army Airfield in Alabama. The pilots who did this are known as the “Tuskegee Airmen.” Third from the left is Benjamin O. Davis, the first commander of an all-black air unit. Davis led dozens of dangerous missions during World War II. Blacks fought in segregated units in the war”. This piece of evidence shows that African Americans were able to join the war unlike before because they were not allowed to join the military because of their race.
The Tuskegee Airmen were the most fascinated people that ever could exist. They were there when the war started and when the war ended. They were a huge help throughout it all. But what have become of those airmen. There biggest role in the war was being a pilot that served with the all-black unit.
They were the first African-American military aviators in the U.S. armed forces. The airmen changed the war significantly. This group of aviators was sent on a heavy bomber escort mission which succeeded, making us one step closer to winning the war. The pilots were the first African-American aviators because many African-Americans were still subject to the Jim Crow laws, racial segregation laws enacted after the Reconstruction period in Southern United States. When the pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group painted the tails of their P-47s and later, p-51s, red, the nickname “Red tails” was coined.
Chris Kyle an American Hero I think that Chris Kyle is a hero because he was strong, noble and brave. Kyle showed his strength in many occasions. The training he endured to become a SEAL was far from easy, even if he had previously lead a very outdoors woodsman life. (Aldrich, Ian) In fact, Kyle became so good at what he did, that he was considered the best of the best. (Deutsch, Lindsey) In his position as a sniper he had 180 kills that were confirmed, but estimation of 255 all together.
