These were the woman prisoners.

As you can see some of them had baby's while POWs.

My dad is doing great. He still plays a mean game of golf. He has won
the seniors tournament at one of our golf courses in El Paso about 4 or
5 times.  He loves to go fishing and is in great health. 

He was telling me how some of the prisoners did not want to return to North
Korea. It must have been quite an event.
