Organization Tuskegee Airmen
MM2 Donald Fleming served in the US Navy for over 20 years. Although he served his country during the Viet Nam War he didn't stop serving his country there he continues even today serving as President of the Inland Empire Tuskegee Airmen. He has served in this position for over 5 years. You can often see Mr. Fleming mentoring at schools, speaking at community events, senior seniors and etc. sharing military stories and the stories of the Tuskegee Airmen. In addition he is often traveling with and taking care of our original local Tuskegee Airmen that served during those years. This year Mr. Fleming had a major stroke himself however it did not keep him down. He continues to speak to youth over the internet and check on others via the internet. Mr. Fleming has remained very faithful to the term "military serviceman" and I am proud to nominate him for this award. His community service includes speaking engagements, working to support the Soroptimist as a helper, driver for veterans and seniors and you can count on him to assist in handy man jobs.
