"Victory"

My mother was a steelworker during WWII. She belonged to the United Steel & Aluminum Workers - Local No. 309 in Maryville, TN.

She actually operated an overhead crane in the North Plant of the Aluminum Company of America in Alcoa. And she carried a badge.

Well, she carried two badges actually, this one and her employee identification badge issued by the company.

She met my father at the North Plant where he was a millwright. They were married on Christmas Eve, 1944.
