On This Day in Leadership History, March 17th

On this day in leadership history in 1973, the first American prisoners of war (POWs) were released from the “Hanoi Hilton” in Hanoi, North Vietnam. 46 years later, I’m still celebrating my and my brothers’ release and freedom.

What’s the leadership lesson? Never give up.
