with me at McGuire Air Force Base, New
Jersey; I had not seen her in 20 years—
amazing. The highlight of the day was
accepting an invitation to share a meal
with Millicent Young (WASP Class 44-
10), her son Bill, and two of my Air Force
sisters. Little did I know I would also
be dining with Millicent’s classmates
Marty Wyall and Jean McCreery, along
with noted WASP author Sarah Byrn
Rickman. Marty told me how her flight
instructor said there was no difference
between the way he trained the male
Army cadets and the way he trained
the WASP. Some have said others would
have done it if they (the WASP) hadn’t,
but Marty pointed out “they did it—and
changed the world in the process.” As a
budding aviation historian and author, I
could not have asked for a better finale
to my first WAI convention.
Because of this Conference, I am now mentoring a young female pilot
from Ireland who, interesting enough, is
the same age as my 26-year-old daugh-
ter and who’s name is Nicole Guy (my
daughter’s middle name is Nicole). With
the bankruptcy of American Airlines
overshadowing all that we AA employ-
ees do, I was able to find another mean-
ingful purpose for me in this tough time.
I also reconnected with old military
friends again at the conference. Thank
you for all of that.
Thank you so much for everything at the Conference! I had such a
great time! My presentation went really
well—thank you so much for allowing
me to speak!
Thanks again for all your support
with my platform “GirlsFly Too.”
I wanted to let you know about an
exciting presentation I was a part of. It
was the Women of Science & Technol-
ogy presentations for the Girl Scouts of
Alaska. I was honored to be a presenter
with my platform of “GirlsFlyToo” and
the importance of women in aviation.
I had a great presentation—and used lots
of WAI materials! I saw nearly 1,000 girl
scouts and parents. It was an amazing
experience. I will be doing another one
of these presentations later in March af-
ter I return from the Conference.
