Heart and Soul


“My heart and soul belonged to God, country and family long before the Navy got ahold of me.”

Captain Lambert,

I was very impressed with Captain Denton as he exited from the aircraft in 1973 which returned the POW’s from Vietnam to the United States. Even after 8 years as a prisoner of war, and about 4 years of that time in solitary confinement with torture inflicted routinely, he emerged with confidence and the ability to resume a Navy career.

Very respectfully,
Navyman834
