"The war hawks signature star said over a military grade greenfield. It is the one thousand seventy four women who served in the women airforce service pilots wasp corps during world war two. The wasp's became the first woman to fly for the us. Military after training at avenger field in sweetwater texas and were tasked with performing crucial domestic flying duties. Like ferrying military planes and serving on to- targets quadrants. But the opportunity to join the wasp core was largely limited to white women while a handful of women of color served in the unit. Not a single black applicant was to the program. The outright rejection of black women set wa- sp- apart from other us military services during this time says matthew f delmonte a history professor at dartmouth college. Who specializes in african american history and the history of civil rights what stands out about. The wasp's is that they excluded black women entirely. He tells time while the rest of the military and auxiliary services were segregated. They at least allowed. African americans to participate although the creation of wasp was a landmark moment for women in the military mont says that focusing solely on that narrative furthers the whitewashing of american history. What often isn't about is the fact that even if white women were getting different to new opportunities that almost always ran parallel with the maintenance or extension of racial discrimination and racial barriers. He says to only talk about white women's side of the wasp story and not also talk about the fact that black women were denied that opportunity even ones who were qualified and had commercial pilot's licenses misses the broader context. We can't tell one story without telling the other. In april sixteen statement to time nike the wnba and the wings said they had made the joint decision to pull the wings rebel uniform..

"Licensed agents. There are some aspects of Jacqueline. Cochran's life and work and legacy that are a little complicated beyond the things about sort of fabricating a backgrounds and reinventing herself as a different person and all of that. She was such a huge advocate for the women airforce service pilots to exist. But then after the war when when everybody was trying to figure out like what is the role of women in the military she advocated against women flying for the military so women could be in the air force reserve, but not as pilots can you talk about that and this is one of those moments in time that Jackie is so complicated and She has a lot of supporters, a lot of the wasp just or so grateful to her and a lot of the modern women pilots thinks she. was a real bad ass. Can I say that? We just heard that recently. Good. Good good. but you know she she has a lot of admirers. The Air Force. Academy has her sword and a case in a write in a place of prominence and things like that. But Jackie was also very conservative when it came to women's roles and she was very conservative when it came to spending money. And she believed. And she says she she fought against women getting into the Air Force Academy because she thought it would be waste of money and. Jackie. Believed that. Normal women and she's this is these are her words normal women. Get. Married and have children. And so any money that the air force spent training pilots. would be a waste of money and a waste of time because all the women were just GonNa, leave and babies anyway. So this is the same argument that's used against you know giving women. Clerk ships as lawyers or giving women internships once they've gotten their medical degree if they've even better admitted to medical school all those same arguments against giving women those opportunities. Jackie used as well despite the fact that she was out there breaking the speed of sound and flying all these air races and doing all these extraordinary things. But she talks about that was her greatest regret that she didn't have more children that she. Didn't have a normal life I. think it's so hard. It was late in her life that she was saying these things I think it's so hard to put those two realities together of who she was. Even when she was young. And who she became and who she?.
WASP Documentarian Erin Miller
"I'm talking today to Aaron Miller. Now, Erin is not a pilot, but she is the granddaughter of a wasp that's women's airforce service pilots, and she has a fascinating story to tell. So Aaron, thank you so much for being with us today. Thank you for having me your welcome so What I'd like is for you to to share with us what what your grandmother has shared with you about her flying story, and then we'll get to your story of how you how you made things right for your grandmother. But can you tell us how she got her starting aviation? So. My Grandmother. Elaine. Dan. For harmon was born in Baltimore Maryland in Nineteen nineteen and she grew up in the city and was born at home in her house. And had two siblings and was very independent. sporty did a lot of rotor bike and very athletic growing up and she attended the University of Maryland in College Park. Maryland for college. and. She did lots of activities there as well. She was a cheerleader she was on the rifle team swim team. She was in a sorority in all kinds of things very active and her senior year of college. She saw an advertisement in the school newspaper for the civilian. Pilot Training. program. Which I'm sure your listeners are familiar with but it was a program in the nineteen thirties to have more people in the United States prepare to get a pilot's license and Senate was I guess subsidized by the US government and it was offered through a lot of universities and university. Of Maryland was one of them. And Anyway. So they had an advertisement for this program where you could learn how to fly and it costs thirty five dollars. Or forty dollars and you got thirty five hours of flight training and ground school and whatever. So my grandma thought that would be cool. So she applied and at the time which doesn't sound like a big deal you're signing up for a class nowadays. But back, then if you were a woman, they only accepted one woman for every ten men in the class. So you kind of had to I don't I never asked her if there were comp competition about this or she just happened to be the only woman that applied I don't really know but anyway. So, she asked her dad for the money and she also had to get a permission slip signed because she was female and under the age of twenty one and not married. So her dad had to sign a permission slip and that's how she initially took pilot training lessons West, through this program at the University of Maryland. Very. Cool. So after she got her thirty five hours, did she continue to fly on her own? Not Really she I think she did a little bit but she basically that was in nineteen, hundred forty, sue her last year of college. She got her pilot's license and then not too long after that, she got married in the summer of nineteen forty one. To my grandfather, and then as your listeners I'm sure. Well, aware six months later Pearl Harbor happened. So I don't think you flying around was generally something that happened. A Lot. So at that point, my grandmother and grandfather were moving around a lot to support the war effort they lived in Ohio at one point for a while and we're kind of working at different places. And and so how did she get back into? So in nineteen, forty, three, I believe there was an big. The Women Airforce Service pilots kind of became newsworthy and there was a little bit of news about them. Newsreel. The old newsreels are in life magazine, and so my grandmother heard about this program called the WAAS. And thought she could apply and she asked my grandfather. If he thought it would be a good idea and he thought it would be a great idea for her. So she applied and she kind of didn't really think she would get in because she really the most she had done was that civilian pilot training program she didn't have a lot of hours. And she kind of applied and thought oh well, we'll see what happens but they accepted her. So that's how she ended up becoming one of the Watson. Then she started training in April of Nineteen, forty four where did she go for Carini? She was in sweetwater Texas Avenger field, which is in western Texas. About an hour west of Abilene Texas. Now. Did your grandfather go there with her when she went there No. So my grandfather was an engineer and he later became a patent attorney, but he was not in the service because he had a physical defect so he was So, he couldn't serve in the army. But he was I think recruited I would say by a company to actually manufactured airplane parts called Jack and Heintz which some people may not because I've seen their parts in the in the warbirds He got sent to Asia to work on a plan to repair aircraft for the US military in theater in the Pacific. So the planes didn't have to be sent back to the continental United States to be repaired to save time. So he got sent over there to work on that program as a civilian, and so he was gone during this time when she was trainy. tweet water. Aircraft was she trained in? So she was trained on I think they were all trained on basic plane. So things like the the steersman PT, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, eighty, sixes, bt, Thirteen's neither all planes that she was training on. And what did she eventually flawed she I assume she was multi current and flew a lot of different airplanes as wasp. Yes. So all the WAAS flu lots of different planes and there were groups of wasps that were trained to fly every plane that was produced during World War Two from little trainer planes all the way up to be twenty nine bomber. So not every wasp was trained to fly every plane obviously but they're little groups trained to fly like you know pursuit crafter bombers or whatever. So. She was trained to fly bt thirteen's to train men in instrument training. So that was her job after she graduated. So she was transferred to Nellis Air. Base. In Las Vegas. And with her best friend from the WAAS Maggie Gee and Magnesia was to- target pilot in Las Vegas. So they were transferred there and my grandma trained men on instrument training in the thirteen. And she was also has some time as a co-pilot on the B seventeen.

"Of people at this time flying clubs had become really popular. Some women lived on farms or another rea rural areas and they had flying experience from flying crop dusters. But you need to have more than that to get a pilot's license in that meant that a lot of women were paying for their own training so that they could join the wasp and then once they did join, they had to get through further training, really intense training program to be able to do this work. These were the first women to fly aircraft for the US military. They flew virtually every type of aircraft. The military was using and more than a thousand women served in the wasp during. World World War Two thirty eight of them died during their service eleven of them during training and twenty seven during missions since they weren't considered part of the military though even though they were doing work that was definitely connected to the military these women when they died during service weren't given any kind of burial coverage they weren't giving military honors at their funerals. So when deaths did happen, usually it was their fellow wasp who raised the money to send their bodies home and to pay for their funerals. The whole idea at the beginning though had been that the wasp were eventually going to become part of the military but on June twenty-first of nineteen, forty, four Congress actually voted that idea down about six weeks. Later it was announced the wasp we're going to be completely disbanded when the program ended on December twentieth of Nineteen Forty Four. The last class of trainees had just graduated a few weeks before. Everyone was sent home, and this is a huge blow to all the women involved a big reason for this disbanding was that it looked like the war was coming to a close really soon and a lot of male pilots or worried about their jobs. So the program was ended to preserve those jobs for the men who would be returning from the front. The Wasp though to end on a happier note were finally granted military status at nine, hundred, seventy seven and in two thousand nine, the wasp were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal at which point about three hundred.

Welcome to this day in history class from how stuff works dot Com and from the desk of stuff you missed in history class. It's the show where we explore the past one day at a time with a quick look at what happened today in history? Welcome to the podcast I'm Tracy Wilson it's August fifth the Women Airforce Service pilots or wasp was formed on the state in nineteen forty-three. Okay. So think about some of the things that a pilot means the do during a war some of it's obvious right pilots to fly combat missions, flying troops and supplies into and out of combat areas doing recon but there's also a lot of work that's not as obvious if you're not already a pilot or maybe in the military like. Flying the newly built airplanes from a factory to their departure point or testing these new planes to make sure that they are working correctly or win a plane has been repaired. Making sure that the repairs are done correctly towing targets for target practice that win is actually my favorite. You need a lot of pilots to do all of this work and during World War. Two there is a problem they needed more pilots, and so the whole idea was that they would recruit women to do this less obvious non-combat work to free the men up for combat flying the WAAS was formed when two other previously existing groups combined together one of the. Groups was the women's auxiliary ferrying squadron which had been organized by Nancy Harkness Love, and the other was the women's flying training attachment which had been arranged by Jackie Cochran when the two merged Cochran became the WASPS director to be eligible to join the wasp women needed between the ages of twenty one and thirty five, and the already needed to have a pilot's license. Flying was actually kind of a hobby for a lot.

In nine years I would love to find one of the original aircraft that were was flown on the nineteen twenty, nine race wanted to travel errors. Lockheed, one of the ones that those pioneering woman flew not the exact airport not not like these specific serial number Intel number because obviously they're probably not really around unless they're in a museum somewhere the type so. I'd love to find that type and then fly it on the twenty twenty-nine areas for the lake hundred year anniversary of the nineteen twenty, nine race probably will have to fly non comp on non-competition but I would love to try and do something like that.
