Several 'Rosie the Riveters' return to former Willow Run bomber plant
The American Rosie the Riveter Association organized a trip during the weekend to the former Willow Run Bomber Plant, more recently a General Motors power train plant, for 27 “Rosies” who worked in war production at various factories during World War II.
According to a report from the Detroit Free Press, some of the women who worked at the plant during the war returned Saturday for the first time since it had ended.
