COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Lee Ellis | 390th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 366th Tactical Fighter Wing - Air Force

6:17   |   While locked away in a POW camp, Ellis says that the guards were armed around the clock with AK-47s, but were not allowed to hurt prisoners unless they tried to directly escape. He does remember one time, however, when a prisoner got in deep trouble for crafting a makeshift American flag inside his prison cell.
