KQED's Forum First Person series learns from Ranger Betty Reid Soskin about her work at the Park. Listen to the full episode here!

93-year-old ranger Betty Soskin started her career at the age of 85, and gives guided tours at the Rosie the Riveter, World War II Home Front National Historical Park. TODAY's Sheinelle Jones reports.

The oldest national park ranger in the US tells us why she's proud of the second world war home front park in Richmond, just across the bay from San Francisco...

I settled in the greater Bay Area as a six-year-old in 1927. When I graduated from high school in 1938, my two opportunities for employment were working in agriculture or being a domestic servant. At that time, labour unions weren't racially integrated and, during the war, I worked as a clerk for the segregated boilermakers' union.

This episode of the Park Leaders Show felt like I was talking to history. Betty Soskin is the oldest park ranger in the United States. Betty is 93 years old.

Yes, that is impressive. But even more impressive is Betty did not become a park ranger until she was 85 years old.
