Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


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

5:19   |   At the POW camp in Son Tay, Vietnam, Ellis had to do plenty of different jobs to essentially clean up after himself and the other prisoners, and would rotate jobs frequently. After two whole years of being there, he got to write a letter back home to let them know he was okay. He remembers a few unfortunate death stories from the POW camp, and a few where some men attempted to escape. He himself never attempted escape, though.
