During eight years of imprisonment in North Vietnam, including three years of solitary confinement, Captain James Stockdale was a symbol of defiance, organizing the other POWs and refusing to serve as a tool for Vietnamese propaganda. Stockdale received the Medal of Honor three years after his release, on March 6, 1976.

    At no time in our history, have our troops endured such cruelty from the enemy for such a length of time, as the Vietnam Vet has.

    God bless every one of our troops who have ever been even one day a prisoner of war. We Will Never Forget!
