Ms. Dunnham is from Bellevue, Wash., and served as part of the “Caterpillar Club,” a skydive team that jumped from simulated burning and damaged aircraft. A number of Joint Team Andrews Airmen volunteered to escort the WASP and assisted them and their families during the day. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Kat Lynn Justen)
