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!
