Lieutenant Colonel Harry Stewart Jr. graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from New York University.

"On this Memorial Day, few World War II veterans remain. 75 years after the end of the conflict, the ranks of the so-called Greatest Generation are dwindling. Among those still able to tell their stories, is Lieutenant Colonel Harry Stewart Jr. 

Turning 96 on the Fourth of July, Stewart was a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen and is featured in National Geographic’s coverage of the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II in the June 2020 issue, which is available at newsstands May 26. WAMC’s Jim Levulis spoke with Stewart, who began by describing December 7th, 1941."
