The picture above is from Cotton Chats, July 1943. The caption reads, "Some of the 595 Draper Workers
    Now in Our Armed Forces." The story in that issue also states, "There are now 595 Draper employees in
    our armed forces; 423 fathers and 30 mothers have from one to four sons andd daughters in our
    country's service and 20 wives have seen their husbands depart for military duty. Hundreds of others
    have brothers and sisters or grandsons on the service rolls; and near relatives just outside the family
    circle give nearly all the rest of our 3097 men and 450 women workers their personal interest in each
    day's news from the front.
