Boot Camp Instruction

September 20, 2013


Today we begin a series of posts about WAVES boot camp at Hunter College.

WAVE boots learn about the chain of command at the USS Hunter, the boot camp training facility in the Bronx, New York. USS Hunter was the former Hunter College, a women’s college commandeered for the WAVES for the duration of the war in early 1943.
