Rosie the Riveter visits the 459th
Mae Krier, an original “Rosie the Riveter” who helped build B-17s and B-29s during WWII (left), talks about the 459th Air Refueling Wing mission with Maj. Stephen Wilken, 756th Air Refueling Squadron pilot, inside a KC-135R Stratotanker on the Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, flight line April 30, 2019. Krier led a successful campaign for a National Rosie the Riveter Day which led to a unanimous Congressional approval in 2017. It is now observed during Women’s History Month on March 21.
