Jean Byrd Stewart

February 8, 2015


In 1944, the Navy finally approved fully integrated units for women, meaning African American women could enlist in the WAVES. Jean Byrd Stewart was one of those women.

Her story is a part of our month of videos, a countdown to the home video release of Homefront Heroines: The WAVES of World War II.
