Welcome to hingesofhistory.com.
In this site we’ll be telling the the stories of the WAVES of World War II, or Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service. The blog is part of the larger multimedia project Homefront Heroines: The WAVES of World War II.
Homefront Heroines follows a group of quirky, individual and determined women who decided to go where no woman had gone before — into the Navy as WAVES. It tells the story of the more than 100,000 women who joined the Navy during World War II. They were Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service, or WAVES.
