How many Tuskegee Airmen are currently living?

How many Tuskegee Airmen are currently living?  (as of 18-Sep-2018)

For several reasons, we are unable to determine the exact number of all individuals who actually participated in the Tuskegee Airmen experience between March 22, 1941 and November 5, 1949—time period the experience or experiment existed.  Consequently, we are challenged to provide the actual number of all Tuskegee Airmen participants who are still living. Through our research, we can confirm as of May 2019 that 12 of the 355 Tuskegee Airmen single engine pilots who served in the Mediterranean theater operation during WWII are currently living.  In addition, we can confirm 2 of 32 Tuskegee Airmen single engine pilots who were prisoners of war (POW) are still living.
