Fly Gals!

During World War II, more than a thousand women pilots flew difficult and often hazardous missions for the United States Air Force. Known as the WASPs, they were the first female pilots in American military history. Disbanded before war’s end for political reasons, they were forgotten for decades until Congress officially recognized their service and bestowed full military benefits in 1978.

Join us at West Slope Community Library at 6:15pm on Wednesday, June 25 to hear author and speaker Sig Unander tell the fascinating story of this distinctive organization.
Air Force Celebrates Women's History Month
Unander will present profiles of individual WASPs, including Portland’s remarkable Hazel Ying Lee, the first Chinese-American woman pilot, who died completing a dangerous fighter plane ferry mission. Unander will also present rare period photographs.

This program is free and open to the public. No registration required.
