WASPs Receive Congressional Medals

In what many see as a recognition long overdue, the Women's Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) from the World War II era were honored with Congressional Medals yesterday. Dr. Peggy Chabrian, president of the Women in Aviation International said, "This intrepid group of women pilots made an invaluable contribution to the war effort. We are delighted that their hard work and many sacrifices will be honored."
