President Barack Obama signs S.614, the bill that awards a Congressional Gold Medal to Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II, in the White House Oval Office, July 1, 2009. More than 1,000 WASPs flew non-combat missions with military aircraft during the war in order to free male pilots for combat roles. Witnessing the signing are the three former WASPs who attended the event: Lorraine H. Rodgers (far left), Elaine Danforth Harmon (third from left), and Bernice Falk Haydu (fourth from right).
