10,03.09 WASP Ceremony
The WASP Congressional Gold Medal Ceremonies included a "Remembrance Ceremony" at the U.S. Air Force Memorial, in memory of the 38 WASP who lost their lives during training or in the line of duty, 9 March 2010.

On 10 March 2010, as guests of Geri Nyman (Class 43-1), we went to the Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony at the Capitol Visitors Center. All of the high ranking people from both houses of Congress spoke. Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it was the largest group to ever assemble in the new Visitors Center. After the ceremony, Senator Chris Dodd of Massachusetts came down & spoke with Geri for a long while. Too bad that I could not get close enough to get a photograph of them together.
