POW Gallery

The terms POW, MIA and KIA are dreaded words to American families of service men women. Being a POW has always been a trying experience, but the conditions under which American POWs were kept by Japan and North Viet Nam were especially brutal.


In this exhibit survivors such as Sgt. John Fuchs of the Army Air Corps relate their experiences and how the human body and mind can overcome horrible conditions.


This exhibit also compares the treatment of the Allied Military in enemy prison camps to that of enemy soliders were treated in many Texas prison camps, such as nearby Camp Huntsville.
