On International Women’s Day, PenFed honors all women who serve — in their countries and their communities. Watch this inspiring story about PenFed member Erin Miller who fought to preserve her pioneering grandmother’s legacy!

She meant a lot to me not just as a historic figure but as a grandmother.
I think my grandmother and I both share a sense of justice and a sense of
patriotism and a sense of doing the right thing and being persistent.
They ferried planes from factories to departure points where the planes were
then taken overseas to combat venues. They did they were test pilots. They
trained other pilots. They weren't even asking for anything special. They just
wanted to be recognized as equal parts of the army for their service during
World War II. So this is the bill number that was in the House of Representatives
HR 4 336. After the president said he would sign this bill I went and got it
tattooed on my arm. I would like my grandmother to be
remembered as a good person who served her country and then shared her story of
service with younger generations that they can learn about the people that
came before them that made what they do today possible.
