This second edition of this project would not have been possible with the support and work of all of those
participants in Back from Duty:l. Their work provided the foundation, encouragement and enthusiasm to create a
second edition.
In addition, the following people provided additional financial support for Back from Duty: 2:
Jerry Konkel
George Kohlwey
Robert and Lynette Ponton
Donations given in support of this project were used entirely for the printing and production costs.
We thank Nicholas Fieber for his work in interviewing his grandfather, Orville Arendt, and Andrew Wilhelme,
for his work in interviewing his grandfather, Jerry Herbst.
This edition also relied on a cadre of volunteer adult interviewers to complete the project. There would not be
a second edition without the help of the following interviewers:
Allen Buchholz
Brian Eernisse
Mark Jaeger
Jeanne Mueller
Ruth Oehme
Agnes Paulin
Laurie Schwalbe
Sheri Schwalbe
Nick Schanen
Vicki Schanen
