WASP Womens Army Service Pilot identified group
« on: May 25, 2015, 03:53:52 AM »
I was very pleased to obtain a group to a Women's Army Service Pilot named Wilma Morehead Wine.  She graduated with class 43-W-5 and flew with the WASP's through disbanding in 1944 and remained an aviator

A great WASP group, that I'd love to add to my collection. How come everything doesn't come to me first? :(
