One WASPs story
On December 7, 1941, as Japanese planes flew over Pearl Harbor, Evelyn Sharp woke to just another day in Ord, Nebraska. With the beginning of World War Two, however, her life, like many Women Air Force Service Pilots, was about to change drastically. As one of the original Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS) members, Evelyn choose to serve her country like more than 16 million other men and women. However, unlike her brothers and sisters in arms, Evelyn’s casket was not draped with the flag of the country she gave her life to defend.
