WAVES in training at the Aviation Gunnery School in Pensacola, Florida, learn the operation of the projectors used in synthetic gunnery training devices (an early version of virtual reality). The women will later serve as instructors at training centers throughout the country.

The November 1943 photograph comes from the National Archives.
