Ranger Betty is 93 and leading popular tours at Rosie the Riveter National Historical Park -- which she helped shape -- 5 days a week.
Wow! Today I learned that there IS a Rosie the Riveter National Historical Park.
The park strives to collect, preserve and protect the artifacts and stories of Rosie the Riveter and the World War II Home Front experience for the nation. In my role as a ranger, I provide tours of the park, telling my personal World War II story and encouraging others to contribute theirs to the park’s collection of oral histories.
