Explore the history and legacy of women who answered the call during World War II in a screening of the National Park Service film Hometown Heroes. NPS Deputy Superintendent Sue Fritzke will also talk about wartime changes that occurred in boom towns across America, including Richmond, CA, the site of Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park. If you, your mother, or grandmother was a Rosie, bring your story to share!
