Ward County is home to the once historical Pyote Rattlesnake Bomber Base. Among the many facts about the Bomber Base is that it published a weekly newspaper. The newspaper, "The Rattler" won several awards and was written by assigned soldiers who had worked on newspapers in civilian life to create this once a week paper. Recovered copies of "The Rattler" have been scanned by Texas Tech University and posted on the link to the left under Useful Links. The copies run from the first paper published on April 27, 1943 until December, 1945.
