Rosa Polhill Green decided to serve the United States during WWII through the WAVES program, a volunteer initiative in which women worked as part of the U.S. Naval Reserve.

In this conversation, Rosa talks to her daughter Emily Green about what it was like serving under the WAVES and the projects she worked on.

StoryCorps Athens stories were recorded locally at the StoryCorps mobile booth at the Athens-Clarke County Library in the fall of 2018. StoryCorps is part of a national initiative to record and preserve the stories of everyday people.
