American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the home front during World War II.

Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, sewing clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, rolling bandages, clerical, farming, and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials.

These women have stories of their WWII experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told. American Rosie the Riveter Association would like to acknowledge these women with a certificate and have their stories placed in the organizations archives.

The association is a patriotic/non-profit organization whose purpose is to recognize and preserve the history and legacy of working women during WWII. This organization was founded in 1998 by Dr. Frances Carter, Birmingham, Alabama and now has more than 5,400 members nationwide. Current elected officers from Georgia, Maryland, Texas, Missouri and Alabama all serve on a volunteer basis.

If you are a woman (or descendant of a woman) who worked during WWII, or for more information, call 888-557-6743 or email [email protected].
