    Yesterday’s CBS Evening News (Jan. 16, 2019) aired a short story about the recent location and identification of the remains of a Tuskegee Airman pilot (Capt. Lawrence Dickson) who was shot down over Austria in 1944: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TviEO7-1uWA

    At 2:09, you can see Noel Parrish’s signature on Dickson’s Pilot Training diploma earned on March 25, 1943.
