There are many small weekly or monthly publications in the five towns that are part of the Fall Mountain Regional School District. Most of those are put together by dedicated volunteers who gather all kinds of local news. These newspapers are free and very well read by the citizens of the towns. Our Town is a monthly publication that is published in Charlestown, NH. It is printed the old fashioned way: in black and white on paper, which still has a lot of charm. Look up close and you can see that the photos are build up of tiny ink dots.

The Dutch national daily paper Trouw published three pages about "Cadets". The newspaper was one of the financial backers of the book project, together with the Fund for Special Journalism Projects in The Netherlands. Their support made it possible for me to spend more time on research, the interviews and writing the story.
