To the remaining family of John"Jack" Lyle. It was exciting to learn of our true African American Black History of The Tuskegee Air men and their struggle to become Airmen. But at last John "Jack"Lyle has ended the struggle , only to awaken to a new day where everyone will stand equal to each other, no more inequality. But true freedom and peace forever.

RIP Mr. Lyle. Your services and dedication to this country are appreciated.

Jack here is to you and your fellow "Red Tails". One movie my great grandsons love to watch is "Red Tails" I grew up during the war and served during the Koean War. Jim Payne Marshfield MO

I was born post WW2, and grew up in Chicago: wishing I could have known Mr Lyle so I could have personally thanked him for his bravery, and the service he provided to the world. I also wish to thank for becoming a member of the CPD too. Rest In Peace Sir. Your long, duty-filled life has earned that !
