      Amarillo VA honors POWs

      Thomas E. Creek VA Medical Center

      The Thomas E. Creek VA Medical Center played host to several former prisoners of war Wednesday.

      They have the events twice a year for men who found themselves in prison camps during the Second World War, the Korean War or Vietnam.

      The staff served the men and their families a barbeque lunch and gave each a loaf of bread baked at Belmont Bakery.

      The bread is meant to symbolize the deprivation they each experienced at the hands of their enemies.

      Jack Moss spent the duration of World War Two in a japanese camp in Burma.

      He said it was hard to describe but it was like living like snakes.
