    I am sure that military peeps were enumerated. I will suggest that is was done by the personnel office of the base where they were stationed. I happened to be on active duty and stationed overseas in 1980. I don’t remember any questions being asked, so the personnel office would have Had to be the one doing it. As far as that goes, a couple hundred thousand peeps and their dependents enumerated in one dump. Done.

      On the government site it provides photos (not actual blank forms) of the 1950 blank census forms, one of which specifically notes it’s for military, etc. Perhaps they meant they weren’t enumerated on the main form? I also questioned the inference that 500,000 people were missed.

    The Steve Morse One-Step site with its 1950 ED tools and essays was down for 51 hours due to a problem with the hosting service. It’s up and hopefully remains up. Sorry for the inconvenience and sorry that DearMYRTLE had to face that during a live demonstration. Joel Weintraub Dana Point
