30 Real-Life Rosie the Riveters Visited DC Tuesday
Thirty "real-life Rosie the Riveters" took an Honor Flight in honor of Women's History Month Tuesday to visit the World War II Memorial. These women are between 88 and 98 years old, but in the early 1940s, they were building weapons in American factories. Ford Motor Company owned some of those factories and sponsored the trip. The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit that arranges trips for veterans so they can see the memorials built in their honor. The Rosies visited Capitol Hill, the World War II Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery, according to a Ford representative.
