Selin serves on WAVE of WWII

-A A +A
By Kate Darnell

Betty Poindexter Selin was 22 years old when she left Cynthiana to join the WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service).

It was 1944 and America was fighting in the most widespread war in history - World War II.

Selin and her friend Winnie Midden went to Biancke’s restaurant to meet with a recruiter for the women’s Navy program that had been established only two years earlier.

“We just decided we wanted to join the WAVES,” Selin said.

She and Midden left for New York on June 14 that same year.
