Hardy 2 bw

George Hardy. Born 1925, Pennsylvania. Hardy went into service at 18, becoming a B-51 pilot in the Tuskegee Airmen. When the U.S. Air Force became its own branch, it eliminated segregated troops in its division. Hardy served in the Korean War, stationed in Guam, and in the Vietnam War. Now, he travels around the country to speak to elementary and high school students about his experiences. “You can’t just jump up and react. You have to set your goals and don’t let anything distract you from those goals. Education means so much. That’s my key thing—learn how to read, write, do arithmetic.”
