RICHMOND — During World War II, Sue Gaiser Graham worked on Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bombers, aircraft that helped the Allies win the war. Soon, her work coveralls will go on display at Richmond’s Rosie the Riveter Park, donated by her son and daughter-in-law.

Thousands will gather at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park for the 3rd annual Home Front Festival and Rosie Rally. Participants will dress as the iconic Rosie the Riveter, a character from a Westinghouse poster recruiting women into the war effort during WWII.  Join us as we defend (and break!) the Guinness World Record for "The Largest Gathering of People Dressed as a Rosie the Riveter.” This record now stands at 2,229 Rosies- Help us to honor real WWII "Rosies" and make history (again!)
