The notion of women serving in the Navy was not widely supported in the Congress or by the Navy, although some members did support the need for uniformed women during World War II. Nonetheless, the persistence of several women laid the groundwork for Public Law 689, allowing women to serve in the Navy, due in large measure, through the efforts of the Navy's Women's Advisory Council, Margaret Chung, and Eleanor Roosevelt, the First Lady of the United States. The age for officer candidates was between 20 and 49, with a college degree, or two years of college and two years of equivalent professional or business experience. The enlisted age requirements were between 20 and 35, with a high school or business diploma, or equivalent experience. WAVES were primarily white, but 72 African-American women did eventually serve. The Navy's indoctrination of most WAVE officer candidates took place at Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts. Specialized training for officers was held on several college campuses and at various naval facilities. Most enlisted members received recruit training at Hunter College, in The Bronx. After recruit training, some women attended specialized training courses on college campuses and at naval facilities. The WAVES served at 900 shore stations in the United States. The territory of Hawaii was the only overseas station staffed with WAVES. Many officers entered fields previously held by men, such as doctors and engineers. Enlisted women served in jobs from administrative and clerical to parachute riggers. The WAVES' peak strength was 86,291 members. Upon demobilization, the Secretary of the Navy, James Forrestal, Fleet Admiral Ernest King, and Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz all commended the WAVES for their contributions to the war effort.
