Project Description

Bea Cohen, a World War II veteran, has spent her life advocating for her fellow soldiers. During the war, she worked at Douglas Aircraft Company and became a living “Rosie the Riveter,” and soon a U.S. Air Force soldier. At 102, Ms. Cohen is still an active member of many organizations, including the Jewish War Veterans Auxiliary and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Hospital. She believes our Veterans are America’s real heroes, and hopes people will honor, remember and thank them for their sacrifices.
