Arrington Issues Statement on 80th Anniversary of the WASP
WASHINGTON, DC— This weekend, Rep. Jodey C. Arrington (TX-19) released the following statement on the 80th anniversary of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) at the National WASP WWII Museum.
“It is my honor to join the National WASP WWII Museum in recognizing and celebrating the 80th anniversary of America's First Women Air Force Service Pilots. When the forces of fascism and totalitarianism were upending the entire global order, it took every ounce of our nation's measure to win World War II, and the Women's Air Force Service Pilots were a vital part of that effort. By flying wingtip to wingtip with their male counterparts, they were every bit as vital to the war effort and, ultimately, our victory,” said Rep. Arrington.
Congressman Jodey Arrington is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives serving the Nineteenth Congressional District of Texas. He serves as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
