 Beverly was only of only 1,074 women who completed Army Air Force flight training and became a WASP.  She entered  training from Highland Park, IL as one of 103 trainees of Class 44-7.    59 young women graduated on September 8, 1944.  The Big Spring Bombardier School Band played as the trainees passed in review for the graduates.  Lt. Col. Roy P. Ward, the CO of the 2563rd AAFBU (Army Air Force Base Unit) was the speaker for the graduation ceremony. 

After graduation, Beverly received Army Air Force orders and was sent to Douglas Army Air Field in Douglas Arizona to the 3014th AFBU.  There, she flew as a utility, administrative and engineering test pilot.  Aircraft she might have flown included the BT-14, AT-8, UC-78, AT-17 and B-25.

Thank you for caring.

God watch over her family.
