Honoring the American Heroine: The Story of 2nd Lt. Elsie S. Ott

This is one of the many stories that the Purple Heart Foundation plans to exhibit on our women veterans for #WomensHistoryMonth. Second Lieutenant Ott was the first female aviator who helped establish procedures for today's medevac.

Make your one-time or monthly pledge to ensure that all veterans continue to get the support they need.
