WASP June Drew visits Women's Memorial

We are fortunate to know Veteran June S. Drew, WWII Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP). She joined after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. On July 1, 2009 the President signed legislation that would award these women the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest civilian award. This is exactly the kind of service we are honoring! Violette Denney said, “It was my privilege to escort Mrs. Drew to the Veterans Park to see the Women’s Memorial when it was completed and make her picture. She was excited and complimented the committee for remembering her is such a wonderful way. She stated that she could hardly wait to show her family the beautiful park.”

There are military women pictured on both sides of the polished black
granite wall. The park is open and visitors may come and see this new
addition any time.
