    Women Take to the Air in World War 2

    A select group of more than 1,000 women pilots became pioneers, heroes, and role models. They were the "Women Airforce Service Pilots" or "WASP", the first women in history trained to fly American military aircraft.
    The Wasp flew more than 9 million miles and 77 models of aircraft and 38 women would perish while ferrying aircraft and as test pilots, all the while forbidden from actual combat duty.
    After the war, the WASP are denied Veteran status until 1979. In 2002 native El Pasoan Irene Kinne Englund would be the first WASP to receive a military funeral in Arlington National Cemetery!
    More El Paso history next time, on El Paso History Moments. I’m ----------------- for the El Paso County Historical Commission.
