Prisoner of War Hymn, written by Fighter Pilot Quincy Charles of Charlotte North Carolina, who was shot down over North Vietnam in 1965. He was a prisoner of war for four years.

He wrote this on a scrap of toilet paper, with a fish bone whittled to a fine point, with red ink made from a concoction of diarrhea pills. He and fellow prisoners would sing this song while guards were away...


Oh God, to Thee we raise this prayer and sing,

From within these foreign prison walls,

We're men who wear the gold and silver wings

and proudly heed our nation's call.

Give us strength to withstand all the harm,

That the hand of our enemy captors can do,

To inflict pain and strife and deprive every life,

Of the rights they know well we are due.

We pledge unswerving faith and loyalty to our cause,

To America and to Thee.

Amen

We had ours here yesterday as well. There are still 500 P.O.W. or M.I.A. from Maine. I pray for their families.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
