A VIRTUAL SEMINAR
SPEAKER: Col. Thomas Kirk, US Vietnam Veteran and 5.5 YR POW at the Hanoi Hilton
On October 28, 1967, Col. Kirk, US Veteran of the Korean & Vietnam Wars, was forced to eject from his F-105 Thunderchief when it was hit by anti-aircraft fire over North Vietnam. He was immediately captured and taken as a Prisoner of War at the Hanoi Hilton. Col. Kirk spent 2.5 years in solitary confinement. After spending the next 1,964 days in captivity, he was released during Operation Homecoming on March 14, 1973. His powerful testimony of survival while in Hanoi, teaches us what it means to be American, and reinforces the ideals of compassion, love, freedom, patriotism, resilience, and honor.
