Overseas Service

When the WAVES and SPARs began, the women were limited to service in the United States. U.S. territories, including Alaska and Hawaii, were off limits. The logic was that there was no need for the WAVES or SPARs at these ports; the women taking over the shore duty so than men could go overseas. Army women, however, were allowed to serve on foreign soil.
