    Although never having been a POW, I was serving aboard the USS Saratoga CV-60 back then.
    Looking back, I'm left wondering several things, how does that time not seem so far away from today, and, how on Gods green earth did we get where we are today as a Nation? Life was, almost, so much simpler back then.

    Thanks for posting Gene. It was tough enough spending a year in Vietnam as a Company Clerk.

    I have read several books by and about the POW's, but I cannot begin to imagine what it was actually like for them.

    They are tough and great Americans.
