About The Art Piece


At the request of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, this painting was commissioned as a memorial to the Prisoners of War and Missing in North Vietnam. In their nominating the POW as the Military Outstanding Young Man of the Year, the Joint Chiefs hoped to draw attention to the need for American citizens to rally to their plight and help secure their release.
