GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) -- On Father's Day we honor the men who shaped our lives. But on the lakeshore this weekend, an exhibit honors men who gave their lives to service.
'Rise Above Traveling Exhibit' was at Grand Haven's Memorial Airport.
It tells about the first all black fighter squadron called the Tuskegee Airmen.
The group flew during WWII and helped shatter racial barriers. The pilots are now reveered as some of the best in the country.
