mini_rosie_riveterWest Coast classmates meet Rosie the Riveter

The Rosie the Riveter World War II Home Front National Historical Park offers much to explain the wartime experiences of workers at the Kaiser Ship Yards in Richmond, California. Making this a particularly special mini-reunion was the opportunity to hear the account of 96-year-old National Park Service Ranger Betty Soskin as an African-American worker there during World War II.

Nancy's daughter, Susan Rudolph Van Etten, took the picture.
