18 Rosie the Riveters to be feted at Long Beach Veterans Parade November 6th

18 "Rosie the Riveters" will be feted as Grand Marshals of the November 6th Veterans Parade.

These are the women who worked on the homefront during World War II and made the planes, tanks, munitions and ships that helped win the war.

All will be riding in "antique" firetrucks (which by the way means any truck made before 1953!!)

Come out on the parade route on Atlantic Avenue beginning at 10 am and cheer them on.

Save Station 18
