The SPARS were the U.S. Coast Guard's women's auxiliary. The name came from the short version of Semper Paratus (always prepared). The WAVES were the U.S. Navy's women's branch-- I think it stood for Women Accepting Volunteer Emergency Service. Congresswoman Edith Nourse Rogers (R:MA) was one of the strongest champions of letting women serve in the military during World War 2, and it was largely through her efforts that a bill was passed to create a women's branch of the military. And while the jobs available to women were mostly clerical and support jobs, many women eagerly volunteered to serve their country.
