We Served Too

When the U.S. was short on male pilots during WWII, Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) stepped into the cockpit—and were subsequently denied military status and associated benefits. We Served Too celebrates the courageous legacy of these women and the injustices that befell them. (WASPs weren't recognized as WWII veterans until the 1970s.) Hang around after the screening to hear from two surviving female pilots and the film's director. Wed 7 p.m.
