AARP has a short video, Making Waves, that has some information and wonderful pictures of the women who joined the Navy to serve during WWII. My mother was a WAVE so I found it particularly interesting. The video promotes the book, Making WAVES: Navy Women of World War II by Evan Bachner. I'll be checking the library in town to see if they have it.
WAVES = Women Accepted for Voluntary Emergency Service
This is a picture from my mother's collection. She's the one top right.
