What Rush Has To Say About Female WWII Pilots Getting SHUT OUT Of Arlington

In the midst of World War 2, as American men were killed in action as they fought battles in the skies, 1,000 female pilots joined the WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots) to fill in the gaps. Among other things, they test-flew aircraft, trained combat pilots, and delivered shipments of live ammo. 38 of them died during the war. Of those who lived, they didn't see military benefits until 1977 and were never officially given the status of veterans.

In his Morning Update, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh pointed out that even though President George W. Bush gave the OK for WASPs' ashes to be buried with honor at Arlington National Cemetery, President Barack Obama's Secretary of the Army John McHugh reversed the decision last year.

Outrage over WASPs being shut out of Arlington again has led to the introduction of bills in the U.S. House and Senate to allow their ashes back in. According to GovTrack.us, the House bill now has 183 cosponsors — 107 Republicans and 76 Democrats. The Senate bill has 29 cosponsors — nine Republicans and 20 Democrats.

Of the bills, Rush says, "Such a shame that this Administration has to be forced to do what’s right."
