The following are excerpts from local veterans, spouses, and interesting stories related to the theme that didn't quite fit exactly into the other boxes which were collected as part of the Slinger Area History Culture Project.  This is not comprehensive of all veterans interviewed and is a work-in-progress.  The pandemic has slowed down collection a bit.  More may be added at a later date.  Stay tuned for a Military Themed in-person community night in 2020-2021 school year for more thorough thematic data.

Excerpt one from Richard Schmidt, Teletype on Eniwetok in 1953

Excerpt two from Richard Schmidt, H-Bomb testing in 1953

Excerpt three from Richard Schmidt, Typical Day in Testing 

Excerpt from Thomas Smith, author of book on Erwin Rommel
