A special one-of-a-kind poster
honoring the WASP!




Welcome to WASP on the WEB!  
Today is  .  

On these pages, you'll find information on the Women Airforce Service Pilots of WWII. 

During World War II, a select group  of young women pilots became pioneers, heroes, and role models...They were the Women Airforce Service Pilots, WASP, the first women in  history trained to fly  American military aircraft.  In memory of those we have lost and in honor of those we still cherish... WELCOME TO WASP on the WEB, a site dedicated to sharing the history of the Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II, and shining a light on the inspirational stories of their lives before, during and after WWII.

FYI----The CORRECT SPELLING OF WASP-- is WASP!  We DO NOT ADD AN EXTRA "S", because the acronym already stands for Women Airforce Service Pilots.  If you add an 's', it is redundant!  "Pilotss!"  Also, it is Women Airforce Service Pilots, not Women's.  Adding 's makes it possessive.  That means the Airforce belongs to the women.  Think about it!  YES, there are examples of both of these 'misspellings' --but that doesn't mean we won't encourage you to take a stand--and show that you've done your homework!

"This is not a time when women should be patient.  We are in a war and we need to fight it with all our ability and ever weapon possible.  WOMEN PILOTS, in this particular case, are a weapon waiting to be used."      Eleanor Roosevelt, 1942

"You don't need legislation to prove something...you can be whatever you set your heart and head to be, and don't let anybody tell you can't be, because 1078 women pilots did it in World War II."    WASP Annelle  Henderson  Bulechek  44-w-2

"If the nation ever again needs them, American women will respond.  Never again will they have to prove they can do any flying job the military has. Not as an experiment. Not to fill in for men. They will fly as commissioned officers in the future Air Force of the United States with equal pay - hospitalization - insurance - veterans' benefits.
