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, ordinance workers, rolling bandages, clerical and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials.

These women have stories of their World War II 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 association's archives.

American Rosie the Riveter Association is a patriotic/non-profit organization whose purpose is to recognize and preserve the history and legacy of working women during World War II. This organization was founded in 1998 by Dr. Frances Carter, Birmingham, Ala. and now has more than 4,600 members nationwide. Current elected officers from Oregon, Maryland, Georgia, Arizona and Alabama, all serve on a volunteer basis.

Women, or a descendant of a woman, who worked during World War II are asked to call 1-888-557-6743, email americanrosietheriveter2@yahoo.com or write to American Rosie the Riveter, P.O. Box 188, Kimberly, AL 35091.
