The first WAF forecaster assigned to a combat zone was Capt.Margaret Roberts. She left Tan Son Nhut as I arrived but her replacement was Capt. Pat Hayes. (I had said she was the oldest WO before but she was a WO when I met her years before. I bet she was the oldest Captain,though). Pat was assigned up to Chief Scientist in the SEA Weather Center. She could party as well as forecast with the best.
Two of the 18 WAFs selected for the first women's pilot training were weather Officers.In Sep 1977, Lt Carol Scherer was assigned to WC130(weather reconn) pilot duty at Anderson AFB,Guam.
Thanks Larry for telling us about the women Officers you knew when you were in the Air Force. Being in the Army, I wasn't aware that there were woman serving in weather forcasting for the Air Force.
