From 1942 to 1944, Texas was home to one of the most remarkable programs in the history of the Second World War. Hundreds of young women from all walks of life were trained in airfields in Houston and West Texas to become the first women to fly military aircraft in American history, as the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs).
Before we begin… What’s your favorite Western Swing song?
The best source of information for the WASPs is at Wings Across America, where Nancy Parrish has done a wonderful job collecting every scrap of information she could find on the important contributions of these remarkable women.
