Ted notes Pauline isn’t a latecomer to the idea of helping servicemen. In World War II, Pauline was one of America’s Rosie the Riveters — the women who worked in America’s factories manufacturing the armaments needed by the boys overseas. Pauline worked through the war in Benecia, Calif., building howitzers and their shells.
