Biographies of American Ex-Prisoners of War
We take up arms only to protect our country, to throw back tyranny and to defend the cause of freedom. At times the price has run high and never higher than in the last century with so many conflicts.  In our country's hour of need, they answered the call. They gave America the best years of their lives and they stood ready to give life itself.
