National WASP WWII Museum celebrated Homecoming 2017 over Memorial Day weekend, welcoming eleven Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) back to the place they trained to serve our country during World War II.
The WASP (with their class numbers) are:
Roby Anderson 44-W-4
Nell Bright 43-W-7
Edna Davis 43-W-5 (not pictured)
Barbara Heinrich 43-W-4
Mildred “Jane” Doyle 44-W-4
Kay Hilbrandt 44-W-10
Shirley Kruse 44-W-6
Dorothy Lucas 44-W-7
Florence Mascott 44-W-10T
Shutsy Reynolds 44-W-5
Millicent “Millie” Young 44-W-10
For more than a decade, the WASP have been gathering each year to remember their days at Avenger Field; the long hot days of training and study, the rare leisure time, sometimes spent at Lake Sweetwater, and those 38 fallen who gave their lives in service to our nation.
