Just a brief follow-up. I will be keeping this site, Operation Fifinella, running until the end of time.
I love these women and everything they represent (esp. as a woman myself). Their courage, determination and strength are a real inspiration. I am honored to have met so many of these women in person, spent time with and even be “adopted” by a group of them (Helen Snapp, Bee Haydu, Barry Smith, Fran Sargent, Betty Blake, Penny Halberg and Ruth Fleisher).
I am encouraged to see relatives, friends, and other awe-inspired people contine to comment on the site. Please keep the comments coming and check back on the individual WASP pages for those comments! I hope that we all can continue to spread the word about their effort in the War and how they helped open doors for women to become pilots.
May God bless them all!
… And if anyone has any stories they would like to share about the WASP, friend or family, I would love to add them to the site.
