Oldest living WWII veteran, Tuskegee Airmen attend Army All-American Bowl

SAN ANTONIO – Four Tuskegee Airmen were in town Saturday showing support for one of the players of the 2016 Army All-American Bowl.

Cameron Chambers played for the East Team and is the great grand-nephew of one of the legendary airmen.

"It's wonderful, I feel grateful that God has allowed me to be in this environment," said Dr. Granville Coves Coggs.

Richard Overton, 109, of Austin, is the oldest living WWII veteran also attended the game Saturday.

The four men were among the nation’s first black servicemen to serve as military aviators during WWII.
