Summary

Significance: Building 1009, historically known as the Enlisted WAVES Barracks, remains the only extant historic barracks building at Naval Air Station Chase Field and closely represents the contributions of Navy personnel to the base's mission. Further, as a building specifically associated with women's contributions to the war effort, the WAVES Barracks building is a rare tangible link to that association. If conveys a sense of the all-encompassing nature of the emergency that required the sacrifices of all its citizens men and women alike to the successful outcome of the war.
