Overview

The word 'hero' is used far too often. So is the word 'courage.' In the case of Capt. Eugene McDaniel and his hellish experience during the Vietnam War, neither word accurately describes his struggle in enduring the horrors of being one of the most brutalized Prisoner of War (POW).

When his plane was shot down over the skies of Vietnam, McDaniel would be captured and spend six agonizing years as a POW in Hanoi Hilton. His captors used barbaric and sadistic torture techniques on him, but McDaniel remained a source of hope and strength for his fellow POWs by clinging to his faith in even the darkest of hours.

In this 35thanniversary edition ofScars and Stripes, a whole new generation of Americans will come to understand the power of prayer, belief, and devotion to God had in sustaining McDaniel during his six years as a POW in Vietnam.

Capt. Eugene McDaniel's faith in God was an inspiration to his fellow POWs during moments of intense, physical anguish and psychological torture. No matter the trials you face in your life, McDaniel's heroic story re-affirms that faith in God will always provide the light needed in times of darkness.
