See the WASP float in the ROSE PARADE tomorrow

This is a news release from the International Women's Air and Space Museum!

Totally cool

WASP Float in Rose Parade
The WASP (Women's Air Force Service Pilots) will be honored with a float in the New Year's Day Rose Parade tomorrow. Eight WASP plan to be present on the float. (Photo credit- CBS)

"They're all about 90 years old, but they're coming and they're saying, 'Give me a blanket and hot coffee, and we'll be fine,' " said Kate Landdeck, vice president of the nonprofit Wingtip-to-Wingtip Assn., which is sponsoring the float. (LA Times)

The theme for this 125th Rose Parade is "Dreams Come True." The WASP certainly fit this- doing whatever they needed to do to follow their passion of flying and serving their country. For many years these unsung heroes were forgotten, receiving military status and awards decades later. 

We hope that you will be one of the millions of people watching as these amazing women ride in style.
