Remarks & Notes 
The warrior back home. In the darkest of days in 1942, the bad guys were still winning on all fronts. The Axis Powers had built huge fleets of tanks, ships and aircraft and America, well....America was playing catch-up. Early on, US leaders knew that if the full strength of American industry could be brought to bear, in the end, this nation would prevail. But with many of her experienced, able-bodied workers being drafted for military service, America would have to rely on a previously untapped resource...the housewives and homemakers who were the very foundation of her society. Well, the ladies of America and the other allied nations rose to the occasion. Taking on a multitude of non-traditional jobs, they cranked out massive quantities of material for the war effort at production rates never matched before or since. The character known as "Rosie the Riveter" became the iconic symbol of the power of America's female warriors on the home front.

During the August, 2015 Lerro Productions photo shoot, this young lady, who is a member of a WWII re-enactment group, took on the role of "Rosie", here striking a very determined pose with her "gun", as the face of the warrior back home.
