      Author Talk and Book Signing with Wes Wesselhoeft

      Wes Wesselhoeft will share his incredible story and sell and sign his book,Wesselhoeft: Traded to the Enemy. The book is Adolf “Wes” Wesselhoeft's life story that began in Chicago, IL where he was born to immigrant parents. Simply because of their German background, when he was six years old he and his family were moved to the desolate Crystal City internment camp in South Texas. They were later traded to the Germans for American POWs and forced to move to an active war zone in Germany. Still, Wesselhoeft persisted in returning to the United States as a young man and promptly joined the U.S. Air Force. He flew bombers during the Vietnam War where he was exposed to Agent Orange that left him legally blind. He retired as Lieutenant Colonel after 22 years. He and his wife Shirley are residents of Ruston, La.
