Synopsis: The author recounts her experiences serving as a WAVE during World War II, and describes how she taught sailors to use ring gunsights

From Booklist: In 1944, Wingo left her working-class Irish Catholic family in Detroit to join the Waves. Her 18 months of service didn't quite show her the world, but it showed her a great deal beyond her childhood home and faith, taught her about her fellow humans, and saw her assigned to one of the elite Wave units, which trained naval Armed Guard antiaircraft gunners on the West Coast. High points of her memoir include vivid portraits of her family and friends (not to mention a few enemies), the difficulties of being a woman in a service where not all men were sexist but most had to adjust to the idea of women serving, a delicate handling of a friend's gay orientation, and the memorable two-day VJ Day celebration-cum-riot in San Francisco. Equally at home in World War II, women's studies, or naval history collections and well worth welcoming to all. Roland Green
