We don’t have a summary available yet.

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress, and was published on Jul 1, 2009.

Directs the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives to make appropriate arrangements for the award of a single gold medal in honor of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) collectively, in honor of their pioneering military service and exemplary record, which forged revolutionary reform in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Requires the medal to be displayed at the Smithsonian Institution (Smithsonian) after its award.

Expresses the sense of Congress that the Smithsonian shall make the medal available for display elsewhere, particularly at other locations associated with the WASP.
