Tuskegee Airmen from New Jersey

As the township historian in Bernards Township, New Jersey I just released a blog post about a New Jersey Tuskegee Airmen Flight Instructor.

I'm interested in locating ALL of the Tuskegee Airmen (Pilots, Instructors, Medical personell or anyone who supported the effort from New Jersey). Has there been such an effort for the New Jersey group?

Our story was a lost one but an absolute historic gem. A true history lesson in race, honor, and Americanism right here in Basking Ridge.
