"In the fight for Elaine and the WASP, which I was honored to lead in Congress, Democrats and Republicans came together to right a wrong. Erin takes you with her on that mission through the halls of Congress, on social media, and in multiple media interviews to raise awareness, build support and effect change."
- From the foreword by Martha McSally, U.S. Senator
"Elaine Harmon's family 'heard' her last wish loud and clear. She wanted to be buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Against all odds they made it happen. Granddaughter Erin Miller led the fight and in Final Flight Final Flight tells the compelling story of this family saga."
-Sarah Byrn Rickman, WASP author/historian
"Erin Miller has written a comprehensive and succinct history of the fight to allow WASP to be buried in the Arlington Cemetery in Washington, D.C. She was fulfilling her grandmother Elaine Harmon's wishes to be buried there. Erin's explanations are well said and easy to understand. Living in the Washington, D.C., area Elaine Harmon had been extremely helpful in the WASP finally being recognized as veterans of WWII.
