Fundraising for Expansion Project Underway!

A climate-controlled addition is needed at the National WASP WWII Museum to preserve the many precious artifacts and display them properly. Great progress has been made in the last five years bringing Hangar One alive with the WASP story, but there is still much to be done. The legacy these courageous women left us must be shared with all generations. We have a great story to tell and we need to keep moving forward, improving upon what has been accomplished, and we need your support!  Call WASP Museum at 325-235-0099 or email waspmuseum@yahoo.com to learn how you can help.
