POW blinking in morse code to spell T-O-R-T-U-R-E during a forced interview.(r/videos)
My cousin was one of the first pilots shot down and was in the Hanoi Hilton. They tried to get him to make a film and he refused. So they put him on the ground, sat on him and broke his fucking back. it ended up healing, thankfully.
Cool anecdote: he used to play chess with McCain by tapping on the wall between them (they, of course, weren’t aloud to speak).
Edit: Found an interesting article from him
Edit #2: for those interested, check out this movie. It features my cousin, McCain and some other pilots sharing their story.
