Abstract/Description: An elaboration on the story of the wartime shipyards in Tampa is due. This reevaluation of the conditions of the workers includes a depiction of some of the issues that women workers faced. In addition, the efforts of government officials, the managements of the shipyards, and the individual worker are revealed to better understand this home front industry in Tampa and its effect on the postwar development of the area. The reflections of three shipyard workers are included in order to comprehend the sacrifices of these workers and to further evaluate the impact of the home front experience on women's lives.
