National WASP WWII Museum reviews
We spent an illuminating afternoon learning about the critical Women’s Airforce Service Corps (WASP) with so many stories of valor and sacrifice. 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.
