Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

Not your typical Rosie the Riveter.

My buddy, Nate Wilburn had this at Politically Incorrect Aircraft Nuts Organization on Facebook. A history lesson and a single Rule 5 pic to go with it.
Norma Jeane’s first job was working for Radioplane Corporation, where she had various duties. She mounted propellors, helped make parachutes, and also worked on painting the side of fuselages. In the Spring of 1945, the US Army’s 1st Motion Picture Unit sent photographer David Conover to the Radioplane Corporation to take pictures of the Women in War Work. He wrote a book about it all called Finding Marilyn: A Romance(This was during World War II, and Norma Jeane was one of many women who worked at factories all over the USA to help with the war effort.) David Conover was instructed to get pictures of pretty women at work for the soldiers abroad. He spotted young Norma Jeane, and the rest is history…
