Bronze Medal Commemorates First Female Military Pilots
 
This medal is a smaller copy of the Congressional Gold Medal awarded to the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). It was authorized by Congress and produced by the U.S. Mint. The 1-1/2-inch bronze medal is a neat collectable. Three-dimensional engraving means every detail is easy to see.
 
The medal pays tribute to the first U.S. women in history to fly American military aircraft. During World War II, the WASP’s flew in every type of assignment except combat. Their excellent record paved the way to integrating women pilots into the Air Force.
 
The obverse (heads) shows WASP pilots in uniform walking toward their aircraft. The reverse (tails) pictures three aircraft the women would have flown during training. The inscriptions read: “THE FIRST WOMEN IN HISTORY TO FLY AMERICAN MILITARY AIRCRAFT,” “ACT OF CONGRESS,” and “2009”
