I'm writing a novel "If Not for War" set in the year 1968-9. One of the characters in my book lives in Milwaukee and has graduated from the U in Madison. I need information about the training in 1968 (the place, the length of time, the content of the training.) I need my character to have gone for training, but to come back home for a few months and then go to the country. Is it possible that that could have happened? Could there have been a delay in getting his medical records? What else might have happened to delay his departure? I have a few other questions as well and would love to be able to ask someone who has real-life information based on his or her experience. Thank you so much! My email address is email@example.com if you'd like to email me instead of posting here.
