Obama honorees speaking at Oahu aviation museum

The Tuskegee Airmen were President Obama's guests at last week's inauguration; 10 of them rode in the inaugural parade later that day. It was an acknowledgment of the accomplishments of the all-black elite force of World War II pilots, and the path they paved for future generations.
