Retro Snap: Check Out The REAL Rosie The Riveter

This is Rose Monroe, the riveter whose wartime efforts inspired the famous motivational poster. She worked at the Willow Run Aircraft Factory in Ypsilanti, Michigan, building B-29 and B-24 bombers for the U.S. Army Air Forces. In her 50′s, she learned to pilot a plan herself. Happy 4th of July weekend, everyone!
