While letters from the “five old men” were arriving more frequently in late 1992 and early 1993, I felt that they did not pose an extreme threat to the exhibition. We were beginning to work with General Kicklighter, who as executive director of the 50th Anniversary of World War II Commemoration Committee was in touch with a large number of veterans’ groups. Kicklighter felt that the demand for our exhibition would be strong.
