Unofficial Greeting

May 26, 2012

It wasn’t just the Navy officers who were happy to see the WAVES. The enlisted men were as well.

Just getting more familiar – some of those fellas had been over there three and four years and didn’t know what a woman looked like .. and of course we were pretty good lookin.’

– Merrily Kurtz Hewett, WAVE

This photograph shows the first enlisted WAVE to arrive in Hawaii, Mary Babine, being presented with the traditional lei and a welcoming kiss by sailor E.R. Baker.
