Anne C. Sullivan, Veteran
WAVES – , WWII
Queen Creek, Arizona – 02-23-21
ABOUT THE MISSION:
Anne C. Sullivan was a United States Navy Reserve/WAVES veteran. She proudly served her country in the US Navy Reserve/WAVES from 1944 to 1946. On July 30, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Navy Women’s Reserve Act into law, creating what was commonly known as the WAVES — Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service — a division of the U.S. Navy created during World War II to free up male personnel for sea duty. Anne Sullivan volunteered as soon as she met the age requirement that was 20 years old. She was assigned to Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland, then called U.S. Naval Air Test Center. Her ability to take shorthand and excellent typing skills earned her position to Secretary to the Personnel Officer. She had to quickly learn Navy terms and all the required Naval forms. Yeoman 3rd Class Sullivan met the call her nation requested. It is the Patriot Guard Riders distinct honor to provide a Birthday drive by salute to her on her 97th birthday. It is our honor to show respect and gratitude to this hero for her sacrifices made for this nation.
