This Woman's Work: WWII Vet Returns to the Skies

Ad Feedback

It's not everyday that a 91-year-old goes parasailing - but Polly White is not just any senior citizen.
    
The Florida resident served as a woman air service pilot - or WASP - during World War II. In 2009, she received a Congressional Gold Medal for her contribution.
    
Recently, at the request of retirement community director Shannon Ruedlinger, the former WASP pilot decided to take to the skies again.

White stipulated that she would only redon her flight gear if the retirement community could raise at least $500 for Watermark for Kids, a charity that helps fund kids' creative visions.

"It was great, just great," White said. "Particularly the dunking afterwards that was good."

The community managed to raise the money through T-shirt sales, a silent auction, and a raffle.
