Fraley was employed at a factory at Alameda Naval Station during the war. She was one of thousands of women who jumped into fill much needed jobs that were left behind when men left for the war.

 

More than 310,000 women worked in the U.S. aircraft industry in 1943, making up 65 percent of the industry’s total workforce. Prior to the war, approximately 1 percent of the industry was female.
