Margarete McGrath Armstrong received her WASP wings as a graduate of class 44-W-7. She had attended Sacred Heart Academy in Klamath Falls, and returned to Klamath Falls after attending business training in Portland. She was associated with Southern Oregon Hardware and the Lorenz company. After receiving her wings she was assigned to Douglas Army Air Base. She flew BT-14s, AT-8s, UC-78s and B-25s.
