Grace Kunath was 18 years old when she was issued the card as a Trainee at Bethlehem Steel Co., Inc., Staten Island, N. Y.
Dated June 2, 1943 and stamped signature of the Captain of Port, Rear Admiral Stanley Parker, United States Coast Guard.
Grace’s obituary states that she “started her career as a welder in the shipyards on Staten Island during World War II …”
Important piece of unsung American history of the women who worked in the factories and shipyards during WWII represented by the iconic Rosie the Riveter.
After the war, the female workers were promptly fired in favor of their male counterparts.
