As a little girl, I grew up watching old WWII shows with my dad, like Flying Leathernecks with John Wayne and Baa Baa Black Sheep. I recall telling him that I wish I could have been a boy, so I could fly planes like they did on TV. I would thumb through my dad’s old photos from his army days in Korea, looking forward to my turn to serve. Military aviation was in my childhood soul. My dad shared with me the tales of the transit to Korea, sleeping in a hammock on a ship – sea sick all the way. These were the earliest memories of my dream of becoming a military pilot.
