Yeomen (F), Washington, DC. Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Div.

The graphic I have produced below (or download here) shows American women who served in the World War I Navy by state. The top five states/territories are New York (2329), District of Columbia (1874), Massachusetts (1324), Virginia (1071), and Pennsylvania (1067). The total of Navy women in all states/territories is 11,859 (but note discrepancy in Maryland’s number).
