6. My aunt worked on codes.

She showed me her Morse code machine and was an expert at cryptograms all her life. When I visited her in the 1980s she showed me and my sister a book of hieroglyphic cryptograms she was working on.

She also caught a bunch of home repair scam artists who preyed on the elderly by breaking something in their homes and then getting their victims to go to the bank and take out money to pay for the repairs. My aunt went to the bank and got the teller to call the police. She was in her 80s at the time.

A fighter all her life although a very shy one.

Thanks to all the women who served in our armed forces and in the defense industries in WWII. They are our heroes.
