Willow Run Employee Irene Bokros Shares Her Story

We recently interviewed another original Willow Run employee, Irene Bokros. She was employed soon after graduating high school, as the bomber plant began hiring in 1942, and drove all the way from Pinkney, Michigan, every day. She talked about the snow storm of 1943, which closed many of the roads along her route to work, and how much she made in her first pay check. Stay tuned for an excerpt of the interview with this exceptional woman, now 92 years young.
