Maggie Dewan-Smith, LtCol (ret), USAFR, NC. on why the WASP story matters to her:
"At a time when roles were more gender-specific, WASPs bent the rules with favorable results. This positive demonstration likely influenced future attempts at gender bending, allowing greater equality and larger numbers of women integrating into previously male-dominated career fields.
I am looking forward to learning more about the history of these pioneers and their forays into the wild blue yonder."
