My illustrated book, Sky High: The True Story of Maggie Gee, by Marissa Moss, was the story of one of the first Asian-American women pilots to serve as a member of the WASP during WWII. It was a pleasure and a privilege to have met Maggie in person and to hear her stories. let alone illustrate them. Marissa Moss and I were able to see her receive the Congressional Medal of Honor in 2010. She's no longer with us, but her spirit and inspiration live on.
Via Warbirds News:
