Operation Celestial Flight: Honoring the 38 WASP

Operation Celestial Flight
38 women died as WASP from 1943 to 1944, serving their country, but there are no military markers on their graves.

Chaplain, Captain J. Clemens, has initiated action to correct this 65-year old oversight. At his own expenses, he is having personalized bronze flag holders cast, family members and local veteran organizations contacted, and memorial services held or scheduled.

The chaplain himself is based in Afghanistan. Five former WASP have stepped forward to help him honor their fallen comrades.

Yuu can help! Check out the link above.
