A man believed to be the last surviving Tuskegee Airman turns 100 next month and want birthday cards! Retired Sgt. Victor Butler is turning 100 May 21, and hopes the public will help him celebrate. He says he will read every single one, no matter how many he gets. A small wish from a man who made a big impact.

The Tuskegee Airmen were a group of primarily African American military pilots and airmen who fought in World War II. The group broke barriers, and helped encourage the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces.
