RICHMOND, Calif. - At 93-years-old, Betty Reid Soskin shows no signs of slowing down.

In fact, the oldest active ranger in the National Park Service didn't even start her career with the agency until she was 85!

Betty works at the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park in Richmond, California.

In addition to participating in speaking engagements and park bus tours she educates visitors about the roles of women and African-Americans helped shaped the country.

In March, the U.S. Department of the Interior spoke with Betty for Women's History Month.
