  • Twice Escaped: The POW Story of P-47 Pilot Edward R. Kirkland

    Today is April 9, National Former Prisoner of War (POW) Recognition Day in the United States. It is the time we commemorate the service and sacrifice of members of our armed forces who were taken captive by enemy forces in conflict. April 9 commemorates the surrender of our soldiers on Bataan to Imperial Japanese Army forces in 1942, the largest single surrender of American military forces in history.
