Women Airforce Service Pilots, most commonly referred to as WASP was a group that began in response to World War II in the 1940’s. These women were a vital part of the war effort having been trained to fly American military aircraft. Eleanor Roosevelt was quoted in 1942 saying “This is not a time when women should be patient.  We are in a war and we need to fight it with all our ability and every weapon possible.  Women pilots, in this particular case, are a weapon waiting to be used.” This weapon would end with 38 women loosing their lives for their country. How did this group start and more importantly, who were they and what did they do? Stop by the museum for the answers to these and many other questions!
