71 Years Ago


This photograph from July 12, 1943 is of the last Captain’s inspection of the first graduating class of WAVES at the Naval Air Technical Training Center, Norman, Oklahoma.

Ensign Fitting is doing the inspection, while platoon leader Stroud follows close behind (no first names given).

The photo comes from the National Archives.
