Pat Pateman
Women Airforce Service Pilots

Lt. Col. Yvonne “Pat” Patemen entered the Army Air ForcesĀ  in 1943 and earned her wings as a Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP). She was the only WASP to have served in three wars (World War II, Korea, and Vietnam) and retired in 1971 after 22 years as a U.S. Air Force Intelligence Officer.

In May 1989, Lt. Gen. A. P. Clark (USAF ret.), then president of The Friends, accepted the Pateman Collection for presentation to the Air Force Academy and the McDermott Library.
