American Ex-Prisoners of War

Founded on April 14, 1942, the American Ex-Prisoners of War have existed for the purpose of helping others. The organization of former POWs (military and civilian), their spouses, families and civilian internees have helped those affected by their capture deal with the trauma through the friendship of those who shared a common experience. These friendships have formed lasting relationships from POW camps until late in life. The art works shown in this courtyard are given to the people of the United States of America by all POWs in grateful appreciation for having the privilege of being an American and serving their country.
