In March of 2010 The United States awarded the Congressional Gold Medal
– the highest award that a civilian can receive from Congress – to nearly
300 women, all over the age of 86.

What is it that these women did to deserve such a prestigious honor?

“Wings of Silver: The Vi Cowden Story,” follows one
93-year-old woman’s
journey from the Black Hills of South Dakota where she learned to fly biplanes,
to flying fighter planes for the
Army Air Corps in 1943 & ’44.
Vi was among these first women in United States
history to fly military planes.

The Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) were not only crucial to the war effort during World War II, they also changed the course of Women’s history.

Vi's reaction to the Birthday message from the audience
at Port Townsend, Washington is just priceless!!

Our country is losing these amazing WWII Veterans at a rate of
one every three minutes, that is over 430 each day.
We feel it is extremely important to capture these
tremendous personal accounts,
to share with future generations, before it is too late.
These men and women, and their stories are our National Treasures.
 
This project is a tribute to the men and women who fight and work and sacrifice so that we can live free and safe.
