We must never forget the women who played a major role in WW II. We must remember them with honor and respect.

Marjorie, you did not die in vain. Though your sister WASP were not allowed to talk or write of the 38 WASP who died in service, now they are. They never forgot you and neither will I. Thank you for your sacrifice. Cheryl Michell
