DEANIE PARISH AND THE WASPS OF WWII RECEIVE THE CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR

If you read Garage Magazine Issue #21, our Chicks Rule Special Edition, you’ll remember our story about Deanie Parrish, the WWII pilot who was a member of the WASPs ( Women’s Airforce Service Pilots ) as part of our national defense as part of the U.S. Army Air Forces. They handled airborne duties like ferry planes from manufacturing facilities, test new aircraft, tow targets so combat pilots could practice shooting, and a myriad of other tasks. They were the first women in  history trained to fly American military aircraft. Women pilots were trained to fly non-combat missions in order to free up male pilots for active duty. These gals flew everything from BT-13 trainers to B-26 Marauders.
