Join us on Zoom to celebrate one of our most illustrious and beloved veterans, Julia Parsons. Julia volunteered for the Navy WAVES—“Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service”—in 1942 after graduating from Carnegie Tech. She studied cryptology at Naval Reserve Midshipmen’s School at Smith College, and then she was ordered to Washington, D.C. for top secret duty. She joined section SHARK, whose job it was to de-code German U-boat message traffic sent via the ENIGMA machine. Hers was some of the most important work of World War II. Join us for a dinner on Zoom to celebrate Julia’s 100th birthday. She’ll share stories of her service and we’ll toast her remarkable century of life!
