Captain Lou Freeman was Southwest's first African American Pilot, and the first black Chief Pilot at any major U.S. carrier. But he doesn't see himself as a history-maker, just a Pilot who loves to put smiles on people's faces. That's his legacy.
Thanks Cap. Freeman for giving SWA so many years of smiles with productivity. God Bless you for the rest of your life and I hope to meet you in the near future in one of those SWA visits. Nicky Ortiz
