[ARCHIVED] Celebrating a True American Hero

Enoch Woodhouse

Mayor Gary Christenson along with the Chinese American Citizen Alliance celebrated the accomplishments of Lieutenant Colonel Enoch O’D "Woody" Woodhouse, II, now 95 with a lunch at Flaming Grill. Lt. Woodhouse served heroically in the United States Air Force during World War II and earned a Congressional Gold Medal. As a member of the Tuskegee Airmen, he served in America’s first all-Black combat flying unit and played a pivotal role in the early integration of the United States Armed Forces. The Tuskegee Airmen proved to be among the most accomplished pilots in the U.S. Army Airforce and were the driving force behind President Truman’s decision in 1940 to end discrimination in the military. Mayor Christenson was honored to express the City’s gratitude to a true hero who not only served and sacrificed to protect our freedoms but whose efforts and achievements have truly made a difference.
