The Big Country has an abundance of history, much of which centers on ranching and railroad, but what some residents might not realize is the importance the area played in World War II. From 1942 to 1944, Avenger Field in Sweetwater was home to the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots), a select group of brave and patriotic women who were trained to fly and ferry military aircraft between Air Force bases throughout the United States. Their dedication to country and love for the open sky freed male pilots for combat duties.
