The Latest Book Recommendation from Lee’s Bookshelf – “Into the Mouth of the Cat” by Malcolm McConnell. Lee is re-reading this important story about his friend and comrade in the POW camps, Lance Sijan, as an important reminder of the endurance and resilience of the human spirit.
On the night of November 9, 1967, Sijan was ejected from his crippled fighter-bomber over the steep mountains of Laos. Although critically injured and virtually without supplies, he evaded capture in savage terrain for six weeks. Finally caught and placed in a holding camp, he overpowered his guards and escaped, only to be captured again. He resisted his interrogators to the end, and he died two weeks later in Hanoi. His courage was an inspiration to other American prisoners of war, and he was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.
