2nd cousin Melvin O Eubanks was a Tuskegee Airman
I was re-reading the funeral notice and obituary of recently found 2nd Cousin Dr. Melvin Oliver Eubanks. It stated that “ …He joined the Job Corps and later the Tuskegee Airmen and was featured in Ebony magazine, Nov. 1994.”
I rushed to the main branch of the Oakland Public library. They had the issue. The article didn’t mention him by name, but there were a couple of group photos. Now, I have to inquire with my living cousins who may (or may not) know where he is placed in those photos.
Question- Is anyone, here at AfriGeneas, familiar with this Ebony article? Does anyone have a listing of the 'Airmen' in the photos?
The only additional information I have on Melvin is that he was part of the 25th Bomb Squadron and part of the second crew:
2nd Crew): 1/Lt RICHARD REAM; Lester Barkley; John Kelly; Robert Glenn; Hayden
I need help fleshing out his story!
17 Mar 1923 – 23 Jan 1998
