7th grade literature help please ASAP Ms.Sue?

posted by .

I need to write a paper for school. The directions are:

"Research to find how the following connect to the author, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.: Cloud seeding, World War II, Purple Heart, Kilgore Trout. Include any other interesting facts."

So far, this is what I've got (I am doing an outline right now):

Cloud seeding: this connects to the author because

World War II: this connects to the author because Kurt Vonnegut was captured during the Battle of the Bulge on December 19, 1944. He was one of a group of American prisoners of war to survive the attack in an underground slaughterhouse meat locker used by the Germans.

Purple Heart: this connects to the author because Kurt received a Purple Heart after coming back to America from World War II. It was given to him for having a type of frostbite.

Kilgore Trout: this connects to the author because

I have looked and researched online but I can only come up with 1 or 2 sentences. Does anybody have websites or information I can use to complete the paper?
