Phyllis Josephine Thompson’s story started 109 years ago, when she was born in England.

Her amazing life took her to Hampton Bay on Long Island as a child, nursing school in Brooklyn and halfway around the world during World War II to find her husband, whose ship was sunk by a German submarine.

She nursed soldiers who had been wounded on Iwo Jima during the brutal and bloody battle to capture the island, and eventually settled in Hamburg.
