Eugene Bullard an African American aviator and the first black military pilot was born in 1895.  When the US entered WWI, Bullard was not accepted into American service because African Americans were barred from flying. Bullard transferred to the French infantry in January 1918, where he served until the Armistice. In 1954, the French invited Bullard to participate in rekindling the eternal flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and in 1959, he was made a chevalier of the Legion of Honor.

Eugene Jacques Bullard October 1894 – 12 October was the first African-American military pilot, and one of the only two Black military pilots in World War I. He was awarded the Croix de Guerre and the Legion of Honor.
