Tim Cooper, Family 1st Defense
During World War II, Michigan was home to the largest bomber manufacturing plant in the world. At that time, women stepped up in unprecedented numbers to staff this plant — and others around the country — to fill the vacancies left by the men fighting overseas. These women who belonged to the Greatest Generation, became collectively known as “Rosie the Riveter.”
My latest contribution to “Coffee of Die” magazine pays tribute to Rosie and recounts the incredible story of the Willow Run bomber plant in Ypslanti, MI.
