Celebrating Rosie the Riveter

A special week for a 105 year old war hero

 

Great article honoring a true hero of our country, Laura Mallory, who was 1 of 2 or 3 African American women to work at Norfolk Navy Yard during WWII. Laura at the time was a welder and due to her small size (just like today) would work in all the tight holes and cavities of a ship. It's not a lot of fun but it has to be done and at the end of the day you gain a lot of pride in doing the job.
