Fort Knox Commemorates Memorial Day with Park Service

Fort Knox cartoonist Paul Jon is commemorating Memorial Day this year by creating a story-line to honor the civilians that supported their country on the home front. The story-line began yesterday and will introduce the Wesley Knox character to the “Rosie the Riveters” – women who built ships during WWII while most men were serving with the armed forces. The special series will end on Memorial day with a coloring sheet that kids can color. Children who are visiting the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historic Park in Richmond, CA will also receive the coloring sheet. Paul will be at the park himself to present his artwork and meet real Rosie volunteers.
