Are any of you following the story of a female WWII pilot (not in combat, but on active duty during war time) who requested that her ashes be buried at Arlington National Cemetery?
I know some of the British pilots were female, too. They flew formerly damaged planes back into the war zones of Europe, delivering them to the pilots who then flew into the war. I wish I knew more about what our WACs did during war time.
Women played a significant role in most areas of the war—nursing the wounded, breaking codes, building Liberty ships, sewing parachutes. Many women were resistance spies in Europe, too.
Maybe some day there will be a museum planned to honor women during World War II. And perhaps modern women on the battlefields will have the same honors that our brave fathers received.
