Lady of the Month: Vivian C. "Millie" Bailey
Millie Bailey was the first African American female pilot. Vivian C. "Millie" Bailey was a Lieutenant in the Women's Army Corps serving her country with honor in the Second World War. She received her commission at Fort Des Moines, Iowa. After the war, she moved to Chicago and worked for both the Veterans Administration and the Social Security Administration. She moved to Columbia, Maryland about 1970 and still lives in the same house she purchased with husband. She has been a long-time community activist. She served 23 years on the Howard County General Hospital Board of Trustees, supports public education, and "always" supports our soldiers. At the age of 101, in June, 2019 she attended services commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day at the National World War II Memorial in Washington.

She has volunteered in different capacities during the past few decades, working with children in Howard County Schools and packed care packages for soldiers overseas. She has served on advisory boards from police to education. When she talks about how segregation and discrimination affected her life, Mailey said “she hoped the next generations are better human beings”.
The Millie Bailey Fund, established by Mary and Earl Armiger in honor of Bailey is a permanent fund whose proceeds will directly benefit Running Brook, a Title I school with a large population of minority and low income students.

At the age of 103, she continues to live life to the fullest. In fact, last year, she went skydiving for the first time near her home in Columbia, Maryland!
