Women Airforce Service Pilots

The Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) were the first women in American history to fly military aircraft. The WASPs aided our Nation when America faced a shortage of combat pilots during World War II and also pioneered the integration of women pilots into the Armed Services.

Tuskegee Airmen

The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the U.S. Armed Forces. Flying with distinction, these servicemen played a significant role in defending our Nation and desegregating the U.S. military.

Civil Air Patrol

The volunteer members of the Civil Air Patrol provided vital resources to combat national security threats during World War II. Pilots such as Willa Brown blazed a trail for minority women everywhere. She challenged traditional military occupations, and became the first African-American female officer in the Illinois Civil Air Patrol.
