    as soon as they came home, some were promoted in captivity and their families drew their pay at the higher rates    some of them also came home to empty houses and empty  bank accounts

    the military changed the rules after Vietnam so POWs families could only get 1/2 their pay and allowances while they were being held, so the POWs would not come home to being broke on top of a spouse that disappeared on them
