A Very Special Client

“This is not a time when women should be patient.  We are in a war and we need to fight it with all our ability and ever weapon possible.  WOMEN PILOTS, in this particular case, are a weapon waiting to be used.” -Eleanor Roosevelt, 1942

The Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) were the pioneering organizations of civilian female pilots, employed to fly military aircraft under the direction of the US Army Air Forces during WWII. Over 25,000 women applied for the position and 1,074  became WASP pilots, each freeing a male pilot for combat service and duties. They flew over 60 million miles in every type of military aircraft and were granted veteran status in 1977. In 2009, President Obama awarded the surviving WASP’s the Congressional Gold Medal. One of those women is our client, Beverly. We are proud to serve Beverly who served our country so well.
