25 December, 1942

I'm reading On Final Approach: The Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II. It gives a chronological history of the WASP, but it is not thoroughly chronological, for example ther is an entry on December 19, 1942, but then nothing further until December 28, 1942.

Pesumably, there was a Christmas celebration at the airfield in Houston where the first women pilots were training (not yet called the WASP) in the Women's Flying Training Program, which had begun on November 6, 1942 and would extend until February 13, 1943.

I'll continue this chronology on December 28, 1942 (but prior to that will make a few posts summarizing the history of the WASP until that date). I'll do that tomorrow as today is Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all, and may 2011 be a great year for all of us.
