FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly on Monday interviewed a World War II veteran.
Not for a job or as part of a congressional interrogation, but rather, to learn about 94-year-old Marty Wyall’s experiences flying for her country.
The sit-down chat inside Citizens Square in Fort Wayne was part of the Veterans History Project, a national effort to collect and preserve the historic experiences of veterans who served in the United States military by recording their personal narratives and archiving them at the Library of Congress.
Wyall, of Fort Wayne, served as part of the Women Airforce Service Pilots during the war. She completed her pilot training at Avenger Air Field in Sweetwater, Texas, and was assigned to Goodfellow Army Air Field in San Angelo, Texas. She was a recipient of the Congressional Gold Medal.
