My Mom the Sailor

This is my mom at the Women in Military Service to America Memorial. She is holding up a picture of herself taken fifty years ago outside the WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) Barracks aboard Norfolk Naval Air Station, Va. A few years ago she donated to the memorial's construction and is a charter member, but this is the first time she has visited the memorial. She was in the Navy from 1952 to 1955. As a Sailor in the Navy's Military Air Transport Service she flew throughout the United States and Mediterranean Region in logistical support of the Korean War.
