During World War II the Women Air Force Service Pilot program was formed for domestic missions. Annabelle Craft Moss jumped at the opportunity to serve her country, but flying an A-16 Trainer was only the beginning. She went on to lead an active life, working with the Red Cross in Puerto Rico, establishing a travel agency with her husband and playing a dynamic role in Grand Junction’s community.
The Woman's Collection at the Texas Woman's University Library holds hundreds of photographs, documents, interviews, and other archival material related to the Women Air Force Service Pilot Program, helping to preserve the legacy of these pioneering women.
