Rosie the Riveter
They were not able to be recognized for any good deeds that had been done.They also had to deal with segregated training grounds and bunkers.They were risking their lives for those who treated them unfairly.
Tejanos also faced discrimination in the armed forces.Although they fought along with Anglos, they were often faced with rude remarks, violence and were often forbidden to speak by Anglo officers.This pushed them to strive for equal rights when they returned home.
While the men were away at war, women did the jobs that the men once did.The farmed built planes and tamed fires.when the men returned home to their jobs, women, of course, wanted to keep their jobs.They were fired anyways.Women were furious when they couldn't get any job.This became one of the many reasons to strive for women's rights.
After the war, the U.S.A. became a global super power along with the Soviet Union.Europe was destroyed. It's cities and economy were in the toilet after massive war and millions dead by violence and starvation afterwards.
The United States got to fight the war in somebody else's backyard. The US never had to suffer the destruction on its own soil.
This left the US in a strong position. The war also stimulated the US economy and pulled it out of the Great Depression.
The US then got to establish military bases inside Europe, many of which are still there today.
