Thumbs up Smithsonian holds poignant memories for Navy aviator held captive in Vietnam

Smithsonian holds poignant memories for Navy aviator held captive in Vietnam
By: Today News - 02-07-20

Video - make sure you have your sound on: Kicking off a new series of reports on the treasures in “America’s attic,” the Smithsonian, Harry Smith profiles retired U.S. Navy Commander Al Carpenter, for whom one particular exhibit holds powerful memories: the clothes he wore during his more than six years of captivity in Vietnam.

Video link: blob:

Those of us serving during VN knew that Hanoi had our guys in prison and that they were being tortured. Carpenter & McCain and many many more were tortured but were held there for 6 years or more years. And still many more missing!

It's tough to watch this but it hits home seeing this survivor telling his story.

God Bless all that serve and to those we've lost you are not forgotten.


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
