Do yourself a favor: Read "Five Years to Freedom" by Col. Nick Rowe. An amazing story that will make your heart slam in your chest and bring tears to your eyes. Colonel Rowe also tells the story of Captain Rocky Versace, who was captured with him, and did all he could to bring attention and punishment upon himself to spare his fellow prisoners. Captain Versace has been nominated for the Medal of Honor for his actions while a POW, and here is his citation: [url]http://thewall-usa.com/MOH/versace.htm[/url]

The SF Compound at Camp Mackall is named for COL Rowe. His plot at Arlington is in a DV section right behind the tomb of the unknowns along with the Challenger astronauts and Audie Murphy. RIP, Nick!
