BTW--Carol is always looking for veterans of every era for her interviews.

Re: Anyone know any Women Air Force Service Pilots (WASPs/WACs) from WW2?

Hi There,

I believe used to be a woman who had flown for the airforce in WWII living at Little Brook Nursing Home in Califon, NJ.  Their Activities Director, Anne would know more. I think she may have passed on, I haven't been there for a long time. Their number is (908) 832-2220. Anne has a direct extention she may be able to connect you with her family. Please don't use my name, I haven't been in to volunteer for a long time (shame on me).

Take Care,
