Meet and Greet Tammie Jo at her October 10 book launch
The Capital Region Chapter of Women in Aviation International (WAI) is hosting a book launch for Tammie Jo Shults’ book, Nerves of Steel . The event will be held at The Women’s Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery on Thursday, October 10, 2019, from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
As the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) celebrated its 75 th Anniversary Homecoming at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas, members of Women in Aviation International and others in the aviation community honored those pioneering World War II women who have passed by visiting and decorating their graves during Memorial Day weekend.
A contingent led by WAI Director of Communications Kelly Murphy decorated WASP graves in Arlington National Cemetery. A photo of each individual grave was then tweeted with the hashtag #HonoringTheWASP.
