'William A. Robinson calls himself one of the lucky ones.'

He is also one of the modest ones...as are the other pow's.

"To you I say thank you for your service, thank you for your sacrifice but most of all thank you for the example ...," Haines said. "We will never forget the ones who endured captivity so that we might be free."

Ditto that

..."As I stepped on American soil, it was a dream come true," Robinson said. "I was free." ... Amen.

I've had the honor and privilege of meeting several of these guys. When you get away from media, etc., etc., and just sit around a fire talking with 'em and get the real skinny, you realize just what Hell these men went through. It was unbelievable...........and they are a true testament to the triumph of Faith and the human spirit.

"We were given only a cup-and-a-half of water a day," Robinson said. "I cannot pass a water fountain today without making sure it works."

I wonder everyday how liberals today deal with what communism did to Cambodia---the ends justify the means--terrorism--torture...you have to crack eggs to make omelets??

Cup and half of water in a tropical climate!
