August 21, 2013

Ever wonder if you have what it takes to become a WAVE? Attached is the physical exam from August 21, 1942 for would-be WAVE officer Winnifred Quick.

You’ll note that her vision was perfect, she was 5’4″ and weight 113 pounds. She was 30 years old at the time of her exam.

Oh, and she passed the exam with flying colors – Quick would become one of the first WAVE officers, would be the first WAVE to serve outside of the continental United States (in the then-territory of Hawaii), and would become director of the WAVES from 1957-1962.
