Pilots of World War II. Over 25,000 outstanding and patriotic
women responded to the call to join the first female flight
training program in the US. Of more than 1,800 selected, 1,102

airplanes. Towed targets for live gunnery practice for guys on

They were finally recognized on March 10, 2010, with the

time, fewer than 300 WASPs were alive to know their efforts and
military service are appreciated.
