  • We spent an illuminating afternoon learning about the critical Women’s Airforce Service Corps (WASP) with so many stories of valor and sacrifice.  more »
  • I applaud the people and their work establishing this remarkable tribute to the women hardly known of that gave to support WWll, the WASP. The museum tells the whole story and some through the voice.....  more »
  • Very cool. I managed to visit during the WASP reunion and got to meet some very fine women. The ladies that actually flew out of Avenger field are a treasure that won't be around for long. Strongly recommend it before there is nothing but memories and a museum left of these pioneering women.
  • Fun step back in history and a good break on our cross country drive. Great information on the WASP program and more importantly the women themselves.
