Calling all Rosie the Riveters

During World War II, thousands of women stepped up and worked in the aircraft plants, the munitions factories and the shipyards, making the planes, the bullets and the ships that won the war.
On November 6, all Rosie the Riveters are being honored as the Grand Marshal of the Veterans Parade in Long Beach. I invite all women who worked in the defense industries during WWII to contact my office at (562) 570-6932 and let me know if you would like to ride in the parade.
