In Training

Susan Ahn Cuddy would be sent to Cedar Falls, Iowa for her training as a WAVE.

You stand out like a sore thumb for one thing ,and so you have to behave properly. But, everyone was very cordial to me and accepting and I don’t think I faced any uh, problems except that many of them didn’t see an Asian before in the Midwest like in Iowa.

After her initial training, Ahn became one of the first women selected at a Link Trainer Instructor.
