ABC 7 Chicago: Real-life Rosie the Riveter from Chatham continues serving community

On November 11 & 12 we observed Veteran's Day to observe the service of many active and retired military veterans. Today I want to share with you a video from ABC 7 of a Chatham resident a real life "Rosie the Riveter" was an important part of the war effort during the second World War.

Estelle Long is interviewed in this video talking about her background. She was the daughter of a veteran of the first World War - Veteran's Day initially was a day to mark the armistice that ended that conflict - and her husband served in the second World War. She truly believes in contributing to your community.
