At 96, Soskin is the nation’s oldest Park Ranger and a pioneer in the war effort, working as a secretary for a then-segregated ship building union in 1942. Also she was instrumental in the creation of the Rosie the Riveter World War II Homefront National Historic Park in Richmond, California.

“Her message of persevering and removing obstacles as it related to her work in the Kaiser Shipyards resonated here in the Coast Guard in 2017,” said San Francisco Bay Area chapter secretary LCDR Fredrick Pugh.
