U.S. Army's First Women Rotary Wing Aviators is a group of nine female helicopter pilots who represent the first women in rotary wing aviation to serve in the U.S. Army. These four lieutenants and five warrant officers proved women had a place in military aviation and blazed the trail forward for future generations of Army women. During the 1970s, these women displayed the pioneering spirit, persistence, and courage to earn their place in U.S. Army aviation. They include Lieutenants Sally Murphy , Linda Horan DuMoulin , Susan Dunwoody Schoeck , Beverly Birkholtz , and Warrant Officers Jennie Vallance , Diane Dowd , Susan Boring , LaVern Farnsworth , and Mary Reid .
