During the war in USA, Marie’s husband had wrote her lots of letters to keep her posted on what was happening at the front. Curious about those letters, her daughter asked her how they met. With great excitement she narrated her story to her daughter. She told, once she attended a dinner party at one of the army establishments. While she was having her dinner, a young lad asked her for a dance. She described him as a tall, dark, & handsome man with a lot of chivalry. She accepted the dance and they danced whole night and had a good time. The next day, that army man went to see her again but she refused to meet because she wasn’t dressed in her best attire. Angry at this behaviour, the man left never to see her again.
After some time Marie got a job in one of the strategic divisions of the army. The work was so secret that she was escorted by two marines at all times. While working, one day she came across that man’s name once again and got to know that he was at some secret base in an islands which she noted down. This was a threat to national security. Nevertheless she continued copying the address. She tried contacting him and was able to make a contact though risking the national security.
