Parents sometimes actively helped the FBI find their sons, or else sent vitriolic letters disowning them: “You have disgraced your family and your country. … We never want to hear from you again except to have the money back we lent you to fly back to your base. … We burned your birth certificate and your insurance policy. You are no longer a son of ours.”

We hope you enjoy our work.
