Alive again

I was aware of the WASPs in World War II, but I did not even come close to knowing the acronym (Women Airforce Service Pilots). I learned via this book about the quality and quantity of contributions to the World War II effort, but also about the sacrifices and lack of recognition to them as an organization and as individuals. I observe the quality photographs in this book bring their stories to us as real people of just a generation or so ago. The quality of the book lends itself well to have out on the table so that our guests might ask about it, and we might have an invitation to inform and give a gift from of the past that might inspire us today.
