He was one of nearly 1,000 black aviators who prepared for service at Tuskegee Institute and formed a unit that escorted U.S. bombers on missions during the war. Not a bomber was lost on the unit's 200 missions.
Hague joined the service as a fighter pilot in 1942. He later served as assistant to the unit's commander, and retired from the Air Force in 1962.

Charles Thomas
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Jazz pianist Charles Thomas, who shunned the spotlight of touring with Duke Ellington's band to play in his homestate of Arkansas, died Tuesday of prostate cancer. He was 64.
During his career, Thomas headlined numerous jazz festivals and accompanied vocalists such as Tony Bennett. After Ellington's death, the band leader's orchestra asked Thomas to take his place on the piano.
But Thomas' tour with the Duke Ellington Orchestra didn't last long. Thomas "got tired of being Duke Ellington - he wanted to be Charlie Thomas," said his longtime manager, Jim Porter.
