In Charge

What I wanted to be when I grew up was -- in charge. 
Wilma Vaught

Born on March 15, 1930, Vaught become the first female Brigadier General in the Air Force.  Recognizing that memorials of military women are scarce - especially on the National Mail in Washington D.C., Vaught was instrumental in getting the Women In Military Service For America Memorial placed at the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery.
