My Aunt Cassie was a Rivet Girl
My Aunt Cassie 1939
I feel like I am almost famous,key word ALMOST.
This is my Aunt Cassie, my Dad's sister, she was one of the Rosie the Riveter Girls.
In these wartime plants, they made planes and everything else for WWII. Men got paid 54.65$ per week, but women were paid 31.50$ per week. It is still a Man's world,sorry fellas,but the women back then were so patriotic, they still did all that anyway. Sounds like today, folks.
This is my favorite photo where she is sitting on that cords or something, see that smile? That is the Real Aunt Cassie..She and my Uncle Roger lived in Texas, and I as remember them, they were bigger than life. She was always smiling, and happy to goof off with us little kids. My cousins were wonderful to me also, and they didn't have to be.
