During World War II Hannibal “Iowa” Lee, Jr., traveling by train to Tuskegee, Alabama, is joined by fellow flight cadet candidates Billy “A-Train” Roberts, Walter Peoples III, and Lewis Johns. At the start of their training, they are met by Colonel Noel Rogers, the commander of the base; Major Sherman Joy, director of training; and Second Lieutenant Glenn, liaison officer. The cadets are briefed by Rogers and Joy, both with their own views that set the tone for what the cadets would later face in training: Rogers has an optimistic view of the cadets, wanting the cadets to prove the naysayers wrong and letting them know how much of an honor it would be for the cadets to pass the training and earn their wings as aviators.

Major Joy, however, reflects the views of most of white America at the time, belittling the cadets and questioning whether they are up to the task. Afterward, Lt. Glenn tells the cadets that he hoped they took note of the differing views of the two different officers. Later that evening, the cadets are chatting among themselves, and begin to introduce themselves and what their college majors were (e.g. “Lewis Johns, English Literature”). It is during this time where Walter Peoples “guarantees” that no one’s name would be called above his on graduation day.
