Default If we have money

to give to people for having children.......we have money to give former POW'S. The hardships they entail, for the most part, are unspeakable. Let's give them a POW Tax Credit.....no, guess you can't call it that, POW'S EARNED that money.

Surrender. Surrendering in Vietnam for an enlisted man was almost certain death. Surrendering to the Japanese, was almost worse than death. Surrendering to the Germans, gave you the best chance. The North Koreans and Chinese were cruel bastards also. I always believed I would never surrender in Vietnam but having not been put in that situation....I don't know. I will not ever judge someone who surrendered. Our government gives away money every day to people that never earned it. CMH recipients also get a stipend....which is good. Let's give it to the POW'S. I've got no problem with that.
