Congressional Medal of Honor recipient and Little Rock native Milton Crenchaw spoke to the Warrior Transition Unit at Camp Robinson.

Crenchaw, the primary flight instructor with the segregated Tuskegee Airmen during World War II, shared his experiences and had some simple advice for the crowd.

"This is nice to put the story out, where people will know that there is a secret and the secret is obey God and get a good education and the jobs will be out there. God'll take care of it from then on," Crenchaw said.

Crenchaw, showing no signs of slowing down at the age of 94, he says he'll continue to speak and share his experiences throughout Black History Month.
