Hogues expressed his thanks for the outpouring of love and support he received from everyone who attended his 90th birthday party. He also summarized what made his time as a Tuskegee Airman such a special event in his life.
“It was a great experience [in the unit]. I was able to meet a lot of people, made a lot of friends, and I just enjoyed it all,” Hogues said. “God is so wonderful, and He’s better than that. I’m so thankful to all my friends that came out to see me.”
