These 2 men were notorious senior personnel in the NVN prison system: on the left is “Spot”, and on the right is “The Rabbit”, monikers given to them by the POWs, as the NVN never shared their names. The Rabbit was especially infamous for his brutal interrogations and punishments.
Two of my heroes: Robbie Risner & Jim Stockdale. They were two of the finest leaders in the NVN POW camps. Risner received his 2d AF Cross for his heroism while a POW, and Stockdale the Medal of Honor. RIP heroes.
