Introductory Profile: About Roberta Cogswell

As my great grandmother, Roberta Cogswell is very close to me I have know her most of my life but our bond has strengthened the last couple of years because she has moved near my grandmother so she can be more heavily supervised. As an assistant during WWII she and many other people in the workforce at that time were women. As a kind of crazy great grandmother she has bad memory of the current events and is quite good at remembering things from that time.

Starting off a little slow we soon warmed up and I got a lot of stories from the second world war. We covered women in WWII, and other big themes at the time of WWII. Overall a great interview and interesting stories.
