World War 2 was truly an effort taken on by both men and women. Women took up for the men when they left their jobs to go fight against the axis of evil (Germany, Japan and Italy). Women who had no real experience with heavy machinery or artillery and aircraft production jumped into the trenches to help ensure we would not only win the war but help ensure the return of their husbands, brothers & fathers. They understood the attention to detail of each job and what it meant to do things right. There is no doubt that with out the contributions of these fine women we would not be privileged to the freedoms we have today.
Here is a great clip with the song “Rosie the Riveter”.
These women were the reason why we were able to keep the war machine going. It amazes me how everyone back then helped do their part to ensure our victory. Some people had scrap metal drives & rationing while others devoted their time to factory work. This is what made the men and women of this period the greatest generation.
