#139 - WASPs - Not the Bug but the Women’s Army Aircorp Pilots. Also Jaqueline Cochran and her stamp

Welcome to Episode #139. We discuss the Woman’s Armp Air Corp WASPs who were paramilitary pilots with a very interesting story. We discuss the Jaquelin Cochran stamp which shows her as a pilot or racer or something…. It does not show that she was a WASP and for very interesting reasons. We also discuss the stamp varieties on her issue as well as some other famous lady pilots who have stamps – notably a discussion on the Quimby stamp and its perf varieties. (3 minute marker)   We also share a story from the USPS podcast about a great letter correspondence to Mohammed Ali. A great story. (21 minute marker).   Enjoy
