Lou Fasulo worked at Los Alamos for almost nine years beginning in 1943 and then was recruited to work at the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant in 1952 when the facility first opened up. He continued to work at Rocky Flats for thirty-one years, as a supervisor of parts inspection and later as the building superintendent for 91 Building. He discusses the centrality of the work done at Los Alamos and later at Rocky Flats as an important factor in winning World War II, the Cold War, and defeating communism. He also talks about the need for secrecy at Rocky Flats, Rocky Flats as a safe place to work, and about both protesters and the workers’ union.
