Original 6 'Rosie the Riveters' visit White House


The six women worked at the Kaiser Shipyard in Richmond during World War II.

One of them, 91-year-old Phyllis Gould wrote Vice President Joe Biden, asking for more credit for their efforts… and a hug, which she got.

"Oh, for sure, yeah. He came bursting out of a room and grabbed me and then he hugged everybody. It felt good!" said Phyllis Gould, a welder.

The six riveters also met President Barack Obama and took a picture with him as well.
