Abstract:

Post office manager Hiram Emory Little, Sr. was born on March 31, 1919 in Eatonton, Georgia. In 1941, Little enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps. In 1944, Little graduated from bombardier school. In January of the following year, he was assigned to the 477th Bombardment Group as a crew member on a B-25 bomber. In April of 1945, Little was one of the African American enlistees who attempted to desegregate the officers’ club at Freeman Field. The event became known as the Freeman Field Mutiny. On December 1, 1945, Little was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army Air Corps and enrolled in Morehouse College. In 1955, Little was one of the first African American supervisors at the Atlanta Postal Service. He along with other surviving Tuskegee Airmen received the Congressional Medal of Honor in 2007.
