Naval War College Review

Article Title



In this issue the Naval War College Review commemorates the first anniversary of the return of our prisoners of war from North Vietnam. All of us in the military are honored to know these men, servicemen who have been asked to give more than any of us living today. I recommend, though, that we all take a cue from one of Rear Adm. Jim Stockdale's remarks in the lead article in this issue. The time has come to stop regarding these men as ex-POW's. Their interests and ours will be served best by welcoming them back to the ranks and not dwelling on the past.
