Rosie the Riveters speak with Team Travis Airmen

Kay Morrison, 95, journeyman welder from 1943-1945, delivers remarks during a base visit June 25, 2019, at Travis Air Force Base, California. Wynn, one of the original Rosie the Riveters, was at Travis AFB to share experiences with female maintainers assigned to the 60th Maintenance Group. Used in movies, newspapers, posters, photographs and articles, the Rosie the Riveter campaign stressed the patriotic need for women to enter the workforce during World War II. Though women filled many positions during the war, the aviation industry saw the greatest increase in female workers. (U.S. Air Force photo by Heide Couch)
