Hawaii Quarters

WAVE Merrily Kurtz Hewett recalled the quarters for WAVES in Hawaii:

We would always have two bunks of two people each. And lockers. The Quonset huts, well you’ve seen quonset huts.  They were divided into cubicles only so far up. Then it was air.You have cubicles about so wide and you hung your uniform. And then, I guess there were drawers all the way down the side for the rest of your clothes.  I couldn’t do it now (laughs).  I have three closets full of stuff!

This photograph of WAVE bunks in Hawaii comes from the National Archives.
