Summers served WWII war effort as female member of U.S. Navy

Cora Mae Summers of Crossett was a member of the WAVES, the Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Services, the women’s branch of the U.S. Naval Reserve, during World War II. "This was my thought: that the war will be over and we will win," she said "I felt like I had rather say, ‘I am glad I did,’ instead of saying ‘I wish I had.’ That was my thought as I made my final decision.”
