  • Since it was first built during World War II, women have been an

  • integral part of the work force at the U.S. Army, Pueblo Chemical

  • Depot. Women were employed in everything from the labs to

  • secretarial work to medicine. The depot's mission has been the

  • safe and secure storage of a chemical weapons stockpile of mustard

  • agent. Today, we're planning on one final mission: the complete

  • destruction of those weapons in the Pueblo Chemical Agent-

  • Destruction Pilot Plant, or PCAPP, which is currently under

  • construction. And once again, women perform a crucial role in our

  • workforce. "I'm Sandy Romero, and I work at PCAPP as the

  • communications manager for the Bechtel Pueblo team. Today, I'm

  • going to show you just how crucial women really are to this

  • project."

  • "Hi my name is Jessica Smith, I'm an electrician, I'm a foreman

  • out here, and I've been doing this for 13 years. My typical day

  • for me out here is to get my guys started on laying out conduit

  • runs, and piping all the electrical systems. We're running cable

  • tray, we're putting all the alarm systems on the air sys doors."

  • "MY name is Shaye Donohue, I've been a pipe fitter for 30 years

  • in the union. I've been at PCAPP for about 2 years. I'd always

  • been interested in construction since I was a little kid. What

  • prompted me to get into this line of work, I went down the hall

  • and they said 'Oh no, this work would be too hard for you to do'

  • and I said 'Ok then sign me up'."

  • "My name is Gloria Murphy. I am the materials foreman for the

  • PCAPP area, for all the pipe fitters. I've been at PCAPP for 28

  • months, and I have been a foreman for almost a year now."

  • "My name is Valerie Isley, I am an electrical field engineer,

  • I've been with the engineering department for about 3 months."

  • "My name is Theresa Rasmussen, I'm out of Local 58 - a pipe

  • fitter. I'm currently the job steward on the PCAPP project, I've

  • been in the trade for 15 years now."

  • "Hi my name is Laurie Riddock, I am a training specialist at the

  • PCAPP Project. I started out as an iron worker and I welded for

  • the PCAPP project since 2007, I just became a training specialist

  • just this February."

  • "The challenges are sometimes physical. A lot of physical

  • challenges for a woman in this trade. Mentally, I'll say that we

  • are women. A little bit more prepared most of the time for the

  • challenges that come up."

  • "When I first became an apprentice it was difficult. Men don't

  • see women in the workforce. It's gradually becoming better and

  • better all the time. We've had to actually probably work three

  • times harder than a male of our same level in an apprenticeship

  • program just to prove and gain the respect of the fellow

  • pipefitters that we work with every day."

  • "If anything these guys completely look out for me, I'm one of

  • them, you know, we all work together side by side, they don't

  • treat me like I'm a girl."

  • "You know we stand on the shoulders of the people who have come

  • before us, and those women did great things under many obstacles

  • and as we go forward then our daughters and our sons can see what

  • potential for human beings there is."

  • During the peak of construction in 2011, PCAPP employed 1,079

  • workers. Of that total workforce, 167 were women working in non-

  • manual jobs, and 21 were women working in craft positions. That

  • means women made up 21% of the PCAPP workforce. Many of these

  • women were working in jobs that traditionally were held by men.

  • Whether they are scientists, engineers or craft workers, women

  • continue to play a vital role in the American workforce. And so,

  • the Rosie the Riveter tradition continues. Women are still

  • working at the Pueblo Chemical Depot and the PCAPP project, to

  • keep America strong and safe.

  • Well, what do you think ladies? Are we up to the task?

  • [All] "We are doing it!"

  • "You know we stand on the shoulders of the people who have come

  • before us, and those women did great things under many

  • obstacles."
