    of the war as an MP at a POW camp in his home town in Kanas. No kidding. Same town in which I was born and reared. There were a few German POW's who returned after being sent back to Germany. I knew a couple of them.

    Dad told me that any of the POW's thought they had been put on trains and driven around in circles before they were deposited in the camps. They couldn't imagine that they had been delivered to the middle of the country. They had no idea the US was such a large country.
