Jeremiah Denton, a hero from the Vietnam War, died today. He was 89.
He was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for seven and a half years You may read more about him here.
When he was shown on TV in 1966 from Vietnam, he blinked the word "torture" with his eyes, in Morse Code.
I have written about Col. Ben Purcell before and you may read that post just here. Ben and his wife, Anne, wrote a book entitled "Love And Duty". Col Ben Purcell was held as a POW in Vietnam for five years while his wife was left in Georgia raising their five children, and tried to make the US government understand the plight of the POW's. Their book is one of great love and great faith, and is one that I can highly recommend to you.
Col. Ben Purcell passed away in April of 2013. I think we should remember and honor these men.
