WAVES in training at the Aviation Gunnery School in Pensacola, Florida, operate the simulator that operates like the twin-moutn power turret used by Navy gunners in aerial action with the enemy. The women will later serve as instructors at training centers throughout the country.

The November 1943 photograph comes from the National Archives.
