During World War II, 38 WASPs died while serving their country. Because female pilots were not considered to be military members under the guidelines followed at the time, each WASP who died was sent home at their own family's expense. There were no military honors given to these women, nor any note of heroism. The WASPs were denied the right of the United States flag being placed in their coffin upon their final return.
