WASP Homecoming 25 May 2019

 

Did you know the WASPs are having a reunion?  It is one of the only opportunities that 4 of the original 1830 WASPs will be available for interviews.  We at Milieux are obsessed with the W.A.S.P.s, the W.A.V.E.S. and the W.A.C.. The history of aviation is full of amazing stories of bravery and accomplishment.

But on 25 May in Sweetwater, TX, women are going to come together for some of the most unsung heroes of our time- the WASPs.  Maj Gen (s) Jeannie Leavitt will be the keynote speaker as well as a brief time to talk to some of the pioneers of the WASP organization.

The National WASP WWII Museum opened in 2005 in a hangar built in 1929 that served as the Sweetwater Municipal Airport.  On 25 May, please join them to celebrate their history and impact they made to your USAF.  These brave women paved the way for diversity, inclusion, and ambition.  Their pictures only tell half their story- hear more of their story from them.  Consider attending!
