607. Wyler Military School

Wyler Military School was located in Evansville in Wisconsin closed in 1979 after a scandal where two employees were under investigation of abuse. The former headmaster Chester DesRochers died before the trial and because he was the center of the investigation the rest of the investigation against another employee was dropped. This was unfortunate as more victims would follow as result of this decision.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.

    I grew up in Evansville, from 1958 to 1975. We lived one block away from that academy. The stories those boys would tell were sad. In 1970, when I was 12, I told my father about it. He was good friends with head master. He told me, in no uncertain terms, to never speak to anybody, ever, about it. I can tell you things because everybody’s dead now, including my father.
