Ethel Neger

Ethel Neger was born on February 18, 1926. She was the daughter of Helen (Parisen) and Daniel Neger. After seeing the movie Here Comes the Waves Ethel decided to join the Navy. Not having reached the age to join, she “borrowed” her sister Helen’s birth certificate and used that to enter. Before entering the Navy as a Wave she was living in Yaphank and working in her father’s florist as a store clerk. Upon entering the service she completed her boot training at Hunter College in New York and was assigned to Bethesda Naval Medical Center in Maryland for further training. Her final assignment was at the St. Albins, Naval Hospital in New York where she was discharged on August 21, 1946.
