We Can Do It! A Rosie the Riveter Story, a Biography of my Mom.
One woman’s story of her generation during World War II and working as a real-life “Rosie the Riveter”

I was born last of my mother’s three children, and she and I shared the same birthday. Because of this, we always had a close relationship. Over breakfast, on long car rides, or to pass lazy summer days, my mom would entrust me with her personal histories. She usually only revealed these tales when we were alone, making them that much more special. One such story was of her time as a “Rosie the Riveter” during World War II. Although that was long before me, it impacted my life forever. I now share her story of being one of the Rosie the Riveter with you, enjoy.

Editorial Reviews

Cayle Fuller
Sometimes I wonder what kind of stories I will have to tell my children when I am older; right now it seems they only include tales of how different life was when I was a child... no computers, no cell phones, and no DVDs... just simple, quiet days filled with long bike rides and trips to the mall to visit with my friends. So it is with this in mind I really enjoy reading stories of other women and discovering the tales they have to tell. `We Can Do It' contains stories rich with history

Meet the Author

This is one woman's story about what it was like to grow up during the World War II era, retold by her son, Mr. G Sagmiller. Read what it was like working as a schoolteacher in a one-room schoolhouse or as a real-life "Rosie the Riveter". This story is rich with history, and really shows how much times have changed.
This is what Mr. Sagmiller had to say about his mother:
I was the youngest of my mother's three children, and she and I shared the same birthday. Because of this, we always had a close relationship. Over breakfast, on long car rides, or to pass lazy summer days, my mom would entrust me with her personal histories. She usually only revealed these tales when we were alone, making them that much more special. One such story was of her time as a "Rosie the Riveter" during World War II. Even though that was long before me, it impacted my life forever. I hope you will enjoy learning about these stories as much as I did.
