Loretta was a Rosie the Riveter. She was 20 years old at the time. She was born Febuary 10, 1920. She had another job but unfortunately she had to stick with one, which was the Rosie the Riveter. A Rosie the Riveter built planes and all kinds of other things.
˘ItĂs not one of my favorite jobs but hey its was you gotta do.÷ She had lots of friends while at war. ˘Well of course it was easy you only had to start talking to people.÷ ˘One of my friends Winnie and I always had laughs, well until war started.÷ The best part of war she had told me was when it was over! ˘The scary part was before I was a Rosie the Riveter you would walk out the door and not know what to expect next. It was very surprisingly scary at that time too.÷ ˘I had lived in Philadelphia my hole life pretty much.÷ ˘I had sad and happy memories, when I saw people getting injured, badly right in front of me all I knew I could do was pray and cry.÷
