Meet Congressional Gold Medal Recipients: Women Airforce Service Pilots
Learn history directly from the heroes themselves, a spirited squadron of pilots who left their homes and families at the height of World War II to serve as the first American women to fly for the U.S. Military.
Meet four original WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots), Bernice "Bee" Falk Haydu, Florence Rubin Mascott, Barry Vincent Smith, and Helen Wyatt Snapp, during the "A Passionate Pursuit" Living History Symposium, Thursday, March 25 - Saturday, March 27.
These remarkable women were,
at last, honored with the Congressional Gold Medal in Washington, D.C. on March 10.
Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet these Congressional Gold Medal Recipients!
Interactive question-and-answer sessions and meet-and-greet opportunities will be available each day.
