Picture was taken at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California in May of this year at the dinner replicating the one held 40 years ago on The White House lawn, welcoming home former POWs. It was a great event and a wonderful reunion with many friends from way back when. And thank you very much for all the kind comments from all you good friends! John and Jo

  1. Thank you all for your service to keep Americans free from harm.

  2. Thank you to all of our Vietnam Veterans would be a much more appropriate theme!

  3. James, I didn't intend to leave out all of the rest of our Vietnam Veterans. I did add a Thank You to all Veterans at the end of this short article about John and the POWs however, it may not be seen if the post was not read at the blog. I started my plan for the post too late to gather more info, and I know we have many Veterans in the club. Forgive me for my shortsightedness. I am changing the heading to be more inclusive. Thank you for reminding me. Judy

  4. I just wanted to make sure that all our Vietnam Veterans got the clear message and I apologize for being so detail oriented, but you must know that I am a retired programmer/analyst. lol

  5. No problem, James. I understand your concern, and believe me, I would not want anyone to feel I had slighted them. John would be the first one to not want to be at the center of any confusion. My son is a programmer, too. lol
