Thank you so much for your contributions here, Pat and adbartolo! You've said it all so well! Mike was a real character and the stories he told of captivity were beyond belief. The POW's developed a tapping code to communicate and would tell stories etc. - and they learned Spanish and it seems another language or two. Anyway, Mike visited our home and conversed with our neighbor, a native-born Cuban, in fluent Spanish. It was remarkable!
Again, thanks for your comments, and thank you to you to adbartolo for your service. I know Mike would salute you, as we all do!

Oh, Kathy, that was such an amazing story--I am sitting here in tears at the thought of his bravery, and of the incredible inspiration his act of patient, painstaking and courageous defiance must have been for the men with him! I always choke up at the line in the Anthem that states "our flag was still there"--through the bombs, through the destruction, and, in this man's case, through the torture and deprivation and desperate hope. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

Thank you for posting this. It gives us a face to all of the Veterans who served in order to keep our Country free. I am so sorry for your loss, but glad that he was a part of your life.
