Arizonan Women Airforce Service Pilots - WASP
1942 — 1944
"We live in the wind and sand ... and our eyes are on the stars!"

The WASP was formed to ferry aircraft, tow gunnery practice targets and test aircraft in the U.S. while thousands of men were sent into combat overseas. Dozens of WASP flew nearly every AAF aircraft type from six bases in Arizona. The patriotic sacrifice, service and success of the WASP, of which many Arizonans were a part, directly contributed to military aviation. Many died in the line of duty, many faced continuing prejudice and yet went on to ferry over 50% of the combat aircraft used in WWII. This is only one of their many feats contributing to victory in Europe and the Pacific and current policies enabling women to serve as aviators in the U.S. military. &n   April 2015
