March is recognized as National Women’s History Month which gives us an opportunity to celebrate the contributions and achievements of women in all fields of work, including the U.S. Navy. Women have played a significant role in the Navy and they continue to do so.
From serving as nurses during World War II to serving in combat operations today, women have always been a vital part of the Navy’s mission. Women have broken down barriers and challenged stereotypes, proving they can excel in any role that they choose.
In recognition of National Women’s History Month, Station HYPO has dedicate every day in March to women.

Hope you cover Rosie The Riveter that produced the ships that kept the 2 ocean Navy afloat during WWII. Bethlehem Shipyard, Quincy, Mass aka Fore River Shipyard to the locals is my favorite contribution to WWII.

I’ll begin March by wearing the Rosie the Riveter t-shirt I bought at the ARIZONA Memoria’s gift shop (and can be ordered online from the Pacific Historic Parks website).
My beloved wife makes a great example of a modern day Rosie the Riveter! She’s a lady who can—and does—everything!

I worked with several WAVES in the commcen at Wahiawa tail end 1956 through early part of 1958
when they were ‘phased out’; among them Grace Deegan, Ella Black, Dottie Collins, Yvonne Wolfe; all
of whom were excellent workers. I also worked with them when they were phased back in at the
commcen in Keflavik in the ’70s and ’80s and at Rota and Key West in the ’80s until my retirement.
Again, all of them were workers and it was a pleasure working with them.
