Transcript Tribute to the WASP WASP does not mean white, Anglo-Saxon Protestant to everyone—for many of us, it means Women's Airforce Service Pilots. Trained under a flight program similiar to the Air Force cadets, these women pilots flew 50 million miles for the Army Air Force on missions of searchlight and tracking, target towing, smoke laying and other chemical missions, with radio-controlled flying, underwent simulated strafing, gave basic and instrument instruction to male pilots on AAF bases, and engaged in engineering testing, and administrative and utility flying. They flew everything the Army Air Force had at the time—bombers, pUrsuit planes, the Flying Fortress B-17, the B-29, and even the military jets just coming into America's flight squadrons. On this Memorial Day weekend, NOW would like to recognize these pioneer women of aviation. These women are still, after more than a quarter century, ignored by the country and government they served. They have no military benefits. Though 38 WASPs lost their lives during World War II, unlike most military personnel, even their burial expenses were paid by their own families. Because of their achievements—their status as pioneer women of the 20th century— NOW refuses to let history forget the Women's Airforce Service Pilots. In tribute to the WASP, the address given at the last graduation of WASPs on December 7, 1944, by General H.H. (Hap) Arnold, will be read by NOW National Board member, Gerald Gardner. In flflemoriam ... to the gallant, valiant 38 members of the Women's Airforce Service Pilots who, during 1942-44 as World War II pilots, gave their lives in the performance of military flight duty for their country: Jane Champlin Susan Clark Margie L.
