POW-MIA Day in San Diego
September 18, 2015

SAN DIEGO - Former POWs, family members, and officers from USS STOCKDALE and USS WILLIAM P. LAWRENCE gathered to remember Vietnam's prisoners of war and those missing in action. The service marked National POW-MIA Day and was held on Pier 3 at Naval Station San Diego, beneath tents set up between the two guided missile destroyers, which bear the name of two POW leaders, Medal of Honor recipient Vice Admiral Jim Stockdale and former Naval Academy Superintendent William P. Lawrence. Jim Stockdale is prominently featured in Alvin Townley's book, DEFIANT. See link below for additional coverage.
