Former riveters to fly in WWII warplanes

We Can Do It! Poster
My grandmother was one of these 6 million women. She worked for Lockheed Aircraft in Burbank during World War II. I don’t know the whole story but she retired from Lockheed in the mid ’70s, having worked for Lockheed for close to 40 years. I think it’s cool that someone is honoring these women. I wish we were doing more to capture their stories about that time in America’s history. “The Greatest Generation” is quickly fading from this world. The depression, World War II and the rebuilding of the world’s industries are some of the most fantastic stories in history. All in one generation, all in one life time.

I hope the five women had a great time.
