Cuba Gooding Jr honors Tuskegee Airmen in upcoming George Lucas film

This Veterans Day, we take a moment to honor the men and women who have served our country proudly. And an upcoming George Lucas film will pay tribute to some special servicemen. 

The film, Red Tails, tells the story of the Tuskegee Airman – America's first black fighter pilots who fought the Nazi's oversees in World War II, while still fighting Jim Crow at home.

Ali Velshi and Alina Cho sit down with Cuba Gooding Jr., one of the stars of the film, to talk about what drew him to this remarkable story.
