Funeral Today For One Of Last Tuskegee Airmen

Jason McKibben, Post-Star

(WIBX) – Funeral services for one of the last Tuskegee Airmen is set to take place today in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Family and friends are gathering at the United Methodist Church to remember and lay to rest Clarence Dart, a fighter pilot in the all-black unit during World War II.

Dart flew 95 missions overseas and survived being shot down twice.

He grew up in Elmira, New York, and spent most of his life after the war working for General Electric and visiting schools.  For him it was important to encourage children to continually better themselves through education.

In 2007 Dart was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.

He died on Friday after suffering a stroke earlier this month.  He will be buried with full military honors at the family plot at the Greenridge Cemetery on Lincoln Avenue in Saratoga.  Clarence Dart was 91 years old.
