Attached is a single page article from 1946 that appeared on the pages of THINK MAGAZINE regarding the women pilots who flew for the U.S. Army during W.W. II:

"The WASP program, for as such the Women Airforces Service Pilots became known, was begun in August, 1943. In addition to providing women fliers who could take over certain jobs and thereby release their brothers for front-line duty, the program was designed to see if women could serve as military pilots and, if so, to serve as a nucleus of an organization that could be rapidly expanded...The women who took part in the pilot program proved of great value to their country, flying almost every type of airplane used by the AAF, from the Thunderbolt fighter, to the C-54 transport, they flew enough miles to reach around the world 2,500 times at the Equator."

The WASPs were fortunate enough to have pioneering aviatrix Jacqueline Cochran (1906 1980) to serve at their helm.
