WASP "Women Airforce Service Pilots" on @Wikipedia: "The Women Airforce Service Pilots, called "Women's Army Service Pilots" in some sources, was a paramilitary aviation organization. The WASP's predecessors, the Women's Flying Training Detachment and the Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron organized separately in September 1942. They were the pioneering organizations of civilian female pilots, employed to fly military aircraft under the direction of the United States Army Air Forces during World War II. The WFTD and WAFS were merged on August 5, 1943, to create the paramilitary WASP organization. The female pilots of the WASP ended up numbering 1,074, each freeing a male pilot for combat service and duties. They flew over 60 million miles in every type of military aircraft. The WASP was granted veteran status in 1977, and given the Congressional Gold Medal in 2009."

  •  Rosie the Riveter "We can Do it"

Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon of the United States, representing the American women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies.[1][2]These women sometimes took entirely new jobs replacing the male workers who were in the military. Rosie the Riveter is used as a symbol of feminism and men and women's economic power.[3]Similar images of women war workers appeared in other countries such as Britain and Australia. Images of women workers were widespread in the media as government posters, and commercial advertising was heavily used by the government to encourage women to volunteer for wartime service in factories.[4]Rosie the Riveter became the subject and title of a song and a Hollywood movie during WWII.


Michigan war worker Geraldine Hoff (later Doyle.)[42]More recent evidence indicates that the formerly mis-identified photo is actually of war worker Naomi Parker (later Fraley) taken at Alameda Naval Air Station in California.

You are wrong. No, She was a image of the women whom were the riveters in the war. Also women art & Nostalga were part of the WW2 planes. It was a sign of the times.... Nose art on the planes.....Its nostalgia and history. Please reference the information and educate.

Okay, I like this, as this is what we were discussing as to how the description of each Woman Officer should be. The link is helpful, but we could edit the pics of each woman in the link into the post, with a very brief description of her credentials that validates her historical significance, and that can make it easier for others' to vote on and which constitutes as being a candidte for a woman Officer in-game tied to an available bonus in-game!

1st Lt. Aleda E. Lutz volunteered with the unit inaugurated by Elsie Ott (see #2), the 803rd Military Air Evacuation Squad, designed to carry wounded soldiers quickly away from the war front. Lutz flew 196 missions to evacuate more than 3,500 men. No other flight nurse logged as many hours as Lutz. She would have stretched that record of 814 hours out further, but in December of 1944, her C47 hospital plane picked up wounded soldiers from Lyon, Italy, and then crashed. There were no survivors. Lutz was the first woman ever awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, conferred posthumously. This was in addition to the Air Medal (earned four times), the Oak Leaf Cluster, the Red Cross Medal, and the Purple Heart. In 1990, the Veterans Administration Hospital in Saginaw, Michigan was named in her honor. 

(Heals loaded troops in transport planes over time)

 

Lieutenant Elsie S. Ott was the first woman to receive the U.S. Air Medal. Already a trained nurse, she joined the Army Air Corps in 1941 and was sent to Karachi, India. The Army Air Corps was considering using airplanes to evacuate injured military as they delivered fresh troops. Ott was assigned to the first evacuation flight with only 24 hours notice -and she had never flown before. The plane had no medical equipment beyond first aid kit supplies, the patients had a motley variety of injuries, diseases, and mental illnesses, and there was only one army medic to help her care for the passengers. The plane left India on January 17, 1943 and made several stops, picking up more patients, on its 6-day flight to Washington, D.C. The previous route for such a mission was by ship, and took three months. Ott wrote up a report on that flight, recommending important changes for further evacuation flights. She returned to India a few months later with a new unit, the 803rd Military Air Evacuation Squad, and was promoted to captain in 1946. 

(Speed boost to injured troops)

These were my suggestions from the other thread excluding the info on Audie Murphy. 

I really don't care how the voting is set up but I'd like to see these two added.

Hello. If someone does not know that in the Soviet Union during the war did not award the title of girls. Although they commanded, they were officers and heroes. Only after the war, many were awarded the rank of generals and heroes of the war. The Great Patriotic War is the brightest example of how women can master all military professions, because they were both machine-gunners, scouts, signalmen, tankmen, airmen, and snipers. Here are links to the Soviet women:

You can give the same skills which already exist. But with women's portraits, I think this will be in demand among players.
