Description: WAVES dine at tables during a party in Corpus Christi, Texas. The women are probably celebrating the 3rd anniversary of the establishment of the WAVES on July 30, 1942. The WAVES are in navy blue dress uniforms and being waited on by an African-American male. Bailey notes that the woman seated at the left side of the table in the foreground with the anchor on her sleeve is a nurse.
