Honoring the 1st US Army Black Female Pilot Millie Bailley

Millie Bailey has seen many milestones in her life. She’s seen wars start, wars end, presidents come and go, but one milestone she’s had is her favorite: she just turned 100 this year.

Bailey, who grew up in the Deep South, joined the Army during World War II and ended up the Commander of a women’s unit.

Currently living in Columbia, Howard county, Bailey said in a recent interview: “I haven’t had a paying job since 1975, but my young friends say I shouldn’t say I’m retired, just say I work without pay.”

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

"Her dream is for true equality. She said: “I would like for everybody to see what they can do to help somebody else, like when you go to buy groceries, buy some extra cans and bring it to the food bank. Yes, live every day thinking ‘what can I do to make it a better world.’”

That's what I am talking about!

Kudos to this young lady and her trailblazing life lived.
