Placeholder Image
Editor's note: John Waelti's series on the American Atomic Veterans continues with today's column.They had all been on the same team, working together - the military brass, the politicians, the scientists led by J. Robert Oppen- heimer. They had prevailed. Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan lay in ruins.Within a few short years Oppenheimer would be no longer on the team - reduced to defending his patriotism before a review board.
