The Long Blue Line: Remembering a trailblazer: family reflects on SPAR’s legacy of service
Rosalen H. Becker, U.S. Coast Guard veteran and trailblazer for women's equality, poses for an undated photo. At the height of World War II, Becker volunteered for the United States Coast Guard Women’s Reserve, known as Semper Paratus Always Ready or SPARs, where she became the first woman in the radio technician rating and ultimately advanced to radio technician 2nd class.
