My aunt Florence went by the name Flossie so I was touched by your book. I did not know her but I know that she flew B-25s to England and was shot down and lost near Iceland. My mother Helen, was a wave working on island invasion preparations and my dad Tom, was a medic and wounded on D-Day. He later worked on the Manhattan project. Thank you!
