Peaches gets her Pilot's License

When Peaches was at Southwestern Louisiana Institute, in Lafayette,  a program was being offered to encourage students to learn to fly.  This was called the Civilian Pilot Training Program started in 1938.  It's purpose was to train a pool of potential military pilots that the country would soon need.  This program operated at 1,132 colleges and universities.  I've posted a link to the National Museum of the USAF if you would like more information.  Mom was one of two girls accepted in her class, I believe the other girl dropped out.  I'll have more of Mom's adventures, later!
