Leadership History Lesson for February 11th

Today in leadership history, we’re remembering and celebrating the very first American POWs in North Vietnam were released as part of Operation Homecoming, the result of diplomatic negotiations concluding U.S. military involvement in Vietnam.

On February 12, 1973, the first of 591 U.S. prisoners began to be repatriated, and return flights continued until late March. They were released in order of shoot down date.
