"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.

The congress lifted a ban against women flying in combat. Gene levitt became america's first female fighter pilot. She flew a total of three hundred combat hours of iraq and afghanistan but women actually started flying military aircraft much earlier than that five decades earlier during world war two at the time. Thousands of new airplanes were coming off assembly lines and needed to be delivered to military bases nationwide. But most of america's pilots were overseas fighting the war so the air force launched an experimental program to train hundreds of female pilots. They were called the women. Airforce service pilots.

"Veterans Homes everyday is veteran's day. Thank you, Commissioner Erkki. For more information, please go to Minnesota military radio dot com. Joining me now is there a long, long time producer from the Minnesota Department of Veteransaffairs. Beth Barstow was the public affairs manager and has been with us almost since the beginning of Minnesota military radio. Let's hear it for both. Hi, Tom. It's great to be back on. Good to have you on that side of the camera and the microphone for a change. Beth. We talked for a while about this anniversary show on I asked you to think about some of the guests that you brought on the show and and you've come up with a couple. What were you thinking about when you were doing that? So my thought was since I'm a veteran myself. I wanted Teo go back and highlight a few clips from women who kind of paved the way for future. Veterans like myself that air female so I think to World War two veterans that I that would be great to highlight during the show. And one of them was part of the women's auxiliary Army Corps that's and corn from and the other one was part of the women's airforce service pilots. And that was Betty Stroh Fist, So I think we're going to start out with and corn strum and Zach if you could play those two clips for us than The best, and I'll talk about it afterwards. So they wanted the women to sign up for the women's of jury Army car to do every job they could free up to men so they could go fight. Yeah, that's pretty good description, okay? And then you said you went to training to become part of the aerial photography school. Can you tell me about that? Was very interesting. I can't remember now how many Months. Theory, Jinnah lll. Course was, But in those days they were jamming everything up. They were shortening everything up because they needed help so badly. We're not in very good shape. When the world started, Faras troops went So we did it in a shorter time. They kind of about in half. And I don't remember Just how many months it Wass. First time I went east west of the Mississippi was when I was on my way to lower you feel that was very exciting. I understand you were part of the 1st 50 women in uniform west of the Miss west of the Mississippi. Nobody had ever seen him before. The guys on the basis had seen them. The civilians hadn't seen them. It was kind of interesting that didn't scare him, Did you? I don't know, finding that they were very, very careful with us. They wouldn't let us take a drink in public. We couldn't course we're working so hard. We didn't have jazz to get in public anyway. And then what happened after D Day? Got a lot busier, Abed. We were very busy. Um Cattan was running wild in Europe and didn't have any maps that show him where he was going. We had to try and keep ahead of him. Fly, fly over and flying back and get a maid and send them back to him and it was really hard. We were working double shifts at that time that he was waiting for your photographs will care what we were doing here was moving as fast as he could move. With the general's He reported to wanna know where he was going. So I'm sure they looked in all the photos. I'm sure they did. So how many ships did you have in the in the photo lab. Three. Three shifts was always running around the clock found was always around the clock. And when they were big battles was going even faster. How many photos do you think you processed? We try. We processed overall over 25 million 25 million photos in a period of how long words they're here to your year and a half or so. Bethancourt stream was a delightful lady and very busy in World War two. Can you imagine World War two? 25 million photos in 1.5 years. The the women that signed up on Gwen off toward an incredible job back then, just like they do today. They did, and it's Yeah, it's amazing just to hear her talk about General Patton running wild and how important these photos were, because if they didn't have these maps These aerial maps and you know they were Just basically trying to figure it out themselves. So I think it's just a huge um, I think for a lot of people listening who may have not heard this interview, it's just So cool to hear about women in World War two that made such a big difference for the war in itself, And obviously the generations to come. They're pioneers and Beth. We've got another one that we would play. A couple of clips for this lady was was part of the Women, Airforce service pilots and Zack, Would you play those clips, please? Betty. I'm curious. At what age did you decide you wanted to fly aircraft Will. I was 21 years old when I started flying, But I was flying a little Piper Cub 65 horse bar comeback and fair Moments order. And I was fined her for about a year and then I heard about this woman's organization, organizational flying military aircraft. That's my idea of flying. He said. That's all right. You I'll just hold. This resident was this of Paper saying that you're going to resign until tomorrow. But tomorrow morning I'm going to get get your ride on 86 got arrived at 86. I came on my call that boy up. I'm not coming home. He said. If you don't I'm going to go home. Marry somebody else. I said you go right ahead with both lived happily ever after. Beth Elizabeth Betty Stroh office was just a delight. Unfortunately, we've since lost her, but that second clip she was talking about. She was going. She was going to leave the women's Otto's Auto Airforce service pilots and go home and get married and they said, Well, wait a minute. Let's get that writing at 86. She was just wild and crazy when she was still set story. That's something I'll never forget. Yeah, She was a hood and it you know, being a woman, A woman pilot who's training men that go overseas to fight in the Arctic. The ward at the time she Yeah. That clip about her talking about that 86. She? She was very, very great, and it was so insistent on her to have her on the show. Best. The effect a couple of great ladies for move or two to feature on today's show on Thank you for that, and I look forward to working with you for the next decade. Thank you, Tom. I do as well. Zach, can you play? We've got a message from retired Major General Larry Shell toe. This is ah, Major General Larry shell toe on. I just want to think that a sort of military radio for the 10 years that they have been on the air. I've done some of this research. I find out that was over 500 shows and they've had over 1200 guests. What's really enjoyable is I had the opportunity along with higher soldiers to travel pretty much around the world. And the thing about Minnesota Military radio is that they were there to tell the stories who document the stories, but this could have been done without the.

"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?.

"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. Of them or still living and more than two hundred attended the ceremony in Washington DC you can learn more about the wasp in the March Twenty first and twenty third twenty sixteen episodes of stuff you missed in history class and those episodes. I interviewed Dr Catherine Sharp landeck about their history. Thanks to Terry Harrison for her audio skills.

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.

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. Just to kind of pay homage to the first woman who raced end just to that legacy in the torch that is being carried year after year with.
