    This is a wonderful thing to do! My mom was a WAVE, one of the first accepted in WWII. She died of Alzheimber’s in 2006, but always was proud of her service. I look forward to reading about other ladies.

    1. Joanne,
      Sorry to hear of your loss, your mother sounds like a brave woman, we are thankful for her service.

      Thank you for the comment!
