    The Preppies got to watch the movie Return With Honor in the theater today. Major eye opener that I would recommend to everyone. Just thought I'd share.

    What is that about? I read the YA version of a book called that, and I am about to start the book. Is that what we are talking about? About Captain Scott O' Grady?

    It's about the prisoners of war from Vietnam. First hand accounts of what they went through and what went through their minds.

    A family friend, US Navy Commander George Coker retired, really suffered in the POW camps. I remember talking to him in the late seventies about his brief escape from the Hanoi camp, especially about how frustating it was to be recaptured. He is the epitome of a tough man. I remember myself and siblings wearing metal bracelets with his name around 1970. Read about his POW experiences. See link.
