Why the WAVES?

June 8, 2011

Margaret was an ambitious young lady. Living in a time when women worked as either teachers, nurses or waitresses, she wanted to do something different.  Despite her boldness and adventuresome spirit, Margaret was still a woman, and admits that one of the main reasons she was drawn to the WAVES, over other branches of the military, was they had the “cutest uniform.”

“One time when I was thinking about joining and one of these fellas that I knew, he says, ‘Why join the Army?’ He said, “You’d be much cuter as a WAVE,’ – and that did it.”
