cutiger83 Posted March 20, 2015 Share #1 Posted March 20, 2015 While researching WACS who wore Air Crew Wings, I found this WAC who is reported to have worn Navigator Wings. I am trying to find more information on her awards. Sergeant Henrietta Williams This is from the Army Women’s Museum http://www.awm.lee.army.mil/pdfs_docs/STEM%20Women-Army%20Women%27s%20Museum.pdf Sergeant Henrietta Williams was the first WAC in the CBI Theater to receive the Air Medal for meritorious achievement in aerial flight. While serving in China from April 7 to August 18, 1945, Sergeant Williams engaged in more than one hundred training flights. She was considered one of the most proficient Loran navigators in the CBI Theater. Sergeant Williams helped develop the navigational maps for crossing the difficult Himalayan mountains, nicknamed “The Hump”. For her outstanding performance as a communications instructor in the air, Sergeant Williams was also awarded the Legion of Merit. I can't get this picture of Sgt Williams to show up correctly. I will try to get an administrator to fix it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
