President Barack Obama signs S.614, a bill to award a Congressional Gold Medal to the Women Airforce Service Pilots, in the Oval Office Wednesday, July 1, 2009. Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) was established during World War II, and from 1942 to 1943, more than a thousand women joined, flying sixty million miles of non-combat military missions. Of the women who received their wings as Women Airforce Service Pilots, approximately 300 are living today. Flanking the President are Bernice Falk Haydu, far left, Elaine Danforth Harmon, and Lorraine H. Rodgers, right. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) is at far right. Behind the President are active duty US Air Force pilots. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

When I first saw your thread I thought for a moment perhaps he moved to Iran.:sarcastic: All joking aside I am glad to see they got the recognition they deserve.

Chuckling out loud. I knew you would come up with something! :laugh::biggrin:
 
I was hoping he'd go hunting with Dick Cheney.... but still, long overdue recognition to the WASPs.

Rarely, he does something right. If I'm pleased with one of his decisions, I email him and let him know. I also email him when I'm not pleased, which is quite a bit.

What else was attached on this bill? I know he didn't sign it just for their recognition!

EDIT: I guess he did. I looked it up and nothing was attached. I'm glad he signed it. They needed recognition a long time ago!
