these women who played such important roles for their countries during wartime should not have had to wait this long to receive their just dues. being a female pilot myself, I cannot even imagine the fear and trepidation that must have gone through their heads during these difficult journies. they are very brave courageous ladies and I am grateful for their efforts.
