With thousands of men fighting in World War II, women are offered jobs in fields that had not previously been available to them, including aviation. Bernice "Bee" Falk Haydu and Dawn Rochow Balden Seymour join a civilian program called the Women Airforce Service Pilots, or WASPs. The WASPs perform a number of military tasks, including ferrying planes and helping train machine gunners in ballistics. "Chronicles of Courage: Stories of Wartime and Innovation" is a co-production of Vulcan Productions and NBC Learn.
