Many people fly the POW flag, have a POW bumper sticker on their car, or wear a POW emblem. Very few of them have any knowledge of what POW means other than maybe knowing who John McCain is and being able to connect the phrase "Hanoi Hilton" with the Vietnam war.
The book Bean Camp to Briar Patch-Life in the POW Camps of Korea and Vietnam will fill in that knowledge gap. The details explaining what our POWs endured sometimes make for difficult reading. But never again will you see that black POW flag without understanding what it means.
