Navy Veteran Turns 100, Reflects on World War II Service


Recommended Posts

GREENWICH, Conn. – On Thanksgiving morning, 1942, six women boarded a New York train bound for Bremerton, Wash. They were young with a patriotic drive that led them to enlist in the Navy during the height of World War II.

At Bremerton, the women would serve as IBM programmers, punching paper cards that would be fed into the computational machines to crunch the numbers the Navy needed for everything from gun trajectories to mass logistics.
