International Women’s Day – Thank you!

The massive contribution of American women to the successful war effort is celebrated beautifully in this poster from the 1940s.  As we celebrate International Women’s Day 2017 we remember with pride and profound gratitude the role played by our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, aunts, and family friends who–in ways large and small–ensured an Allied victory in World War II.  As members of the armed forces, factory workers, and countless other ways, American women played a role that was absolutely essential to the successful outcome of the war.  God bless them all!
