Who:   Alison Beatty, from Yankee Air Museum

            Alison is a political science doctoral student at University of Michigan.  In 2013 she was inspired to dress up as Rosie the Riveter to bring attention to the campaign to save the Willow Run bomber plant.

Last July 4th parade in D.C., she organized the Rosie delegation.  Alison does this out of love for Michigan history and to honor her grandfather who was a mechanic on B-24s with the 458th bomb group in England during WWll.  She encourages visits towww…SaveTheBomberPlant.org.
