House Approves Burial Bill for Women Pilots

On March 22, the House approved, 385-0, H.R. 4336, the Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP) Arlington Inurnment Restoration Act, sponsored by Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ). The House Veterans’ Affairs Committee approved the legislation in February (see The Source, 2/26/16).
