They served in an international spy ring managed by the Office of Strategic Services, an early version of the CIA created in World War II by President Franklin Roosevelt. Read the full story here.

Spread the word, Sister! I posted on this at a Mute Monday called "Patriots". It would be AWESOME to know the specifics of what Child did, but I couldn't find it. Seems she worked on the Personnel side of things and spent time in China and Vietnam and with French citizens living in those places. But that's about all I could find out.
