Air Force Capt. Jennifer Lee, right, kneels as she presents an American flag to Terry Harmon, center seated, daughter of World War II pilot Elaine Danforth Harmon, during burial services at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va. It took an act of Congress, but Harmon, who died last year at age 95, was finally laid to rest at the cemetery. She was one of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), a group of women who flew military aircraft on noncombat missions during World War II so that men were freed up for combat. The women were not granted military status at the time they served, but received retroactive status as veterans in 1977.
