Anti-Semite graffiti and German posters on a shop in Oslo in 1941, Nazi occupied Norway during the Second World War. The graffiti proclaims (left to right): Jøde-parasitten skaffet oss 9de april (The Jew parasite got us 9 April) and Palestina kaller på alle jøder. Vi tåler dem ikke mer i Norge (Palestine calls for all Jews. We don’t stand them any more in Norway).

The WAVES could not serve aboard combat ships or aircraft, and initially were restricted to duty in the continental United States. Late in World War II, they were authorized to serve in certain U.S. possessions, and a number were sent to Hawaii. The war ended before any WAVES could be sent to other locations.
Within their first year, the WAVES were 27,000 strong. A large proportion of the WAVES did clerical work, but some took positions in the aviation community, Judge Advocate General’s Corps, medical professions, communications, intelligence, storekeeper, science and technology.
