Memorial Service of Capt. Lawrence E. Dickson (VIDEO) – Killed in a WWII plane crash on December 23,1944, Tuskegee Airman Capt. Lawrence E. Dickson was recently recovered in Europe and identified by DPAA 75 years after his loss. His daughter chose to have him buried at Arlington National Cemetery. She, family members, Tuskegee Airmen “Red Tails,” and many others were on hand to honor his memory and service. I’m honored to have had the privilege of researching his family for the U.S. Army.
