The Legacy

June 11, 2012

Merrily Kurtz served in the WAVES until 1947, then eventually got married and had a family. She later joined WAVES National, the group for female sea services veterans.

She says of her time in the Navy and WAVES National:

I wanted to get away from home.  I wanted to get out and see the world.  And I did, I really did.  And I have since.  I’ve been lucky.  I’ve gone to conventions and stuff. Met a lot of good people. That’s something.  And I don’t know, isn’t that enough?

This photograph comes from the collection of Merrily Kurtz Hewett.
