What's Your Story

Betty Rodgers

Have you ever wanted to tell your story? Betty Rodgers is a pretty outgoing person. She talks to everyone and always has a smile to share with the world. You wont find Betty telling you about all of the amazing things that she has achieved in her life or about a lot of her life experiences, but she does have one story that she has always wanted to tell. It is the story of "Rosie the Riveter". You see Betty LIVED that story. She remembers it like it was yesterday. She retells of the day she heard about the bombing of Pearl Harbor and how she was only 17. She tells about how she left for California the day after the bombing, so that she could do whatever it took to help with the war effort. Betty recounts her story of her time as a riveter and what it meant to her. Then we took her story and added it to our newsletter so that her story could be read by all. Betty's dream of wanting people to know what it meant to be a Rosie the Riveter during WWII has now been full-filled. Her picture adorns our "Gallery of Honors" to show the world that, although she did not serve in our military, she did serve our country. Thank you Betty for telling us your story and Thank you for your efforts during that eventful war.
