The story of a Faribault, Minnesota woman who was one of 1074 W.A.S.P.s (Women Airforce Service Pilots) to serve the United States during WWII.
"It's hard to overstate the importance of those women who flew those airplanes and made it possible for us to get more men into the combat codkpits. And before the war was over those women were sent home without recognition for what they had done and without veteran's benefits. And it was many years later that they finally did get the appropriate recognition and the veterans benefits. But they didn't whine and they didn't whimper and so they were emblematic of that great generation."
