More important good American History to learn!

While she wasn't in the Military my mom did some amazing work during WW2!

She became head draftsman at Hughes Aircraft!
Consisting of a lot people she was the one who everyone brought their egineering plans to to Sign Off on!
Later when she returned to NYC still during the war she worked at another company and also became head draftsman!
She also did drafting herself.

Also volunteered at the Lower Manhattan hospital tents for injured returning vets.

I've been casually looking off & on on line for years for any info but no luck. When they get an effective covid19 vaccine, I'm going have to try some other deeper dive.
