York WASP Veteran Story Told in California Newspaper
It was 1941. Young York podiatrist Mary Reineberg knew how to fly, so off she went to offer her services to her country. The odds of being chosen were high, but Mary made the grade and became a member of the WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots).
Native Yorker Mary Reineberg Burchard was the daughter of Jacob F. and Salome M. Aulbach Reineberg. Today she lives in Orange County, California, and this week the Orange County Register told her story. Her niece, Kate Redshaw, Hospitality Coordinator at York County Heritage Trust shared the link below with me.
