  • Description

    WITH THE LAST OF THE AMERICAN POWS BACK HOME, THE SELF-IMPOSED SILENCE ON THEIR TREATMENT IN NORTH VIETNAM HAS BEEN BROKEN. AT THE ST. ALBANS NAVAL HOSPITAL IN NEW YORK NAVY LIEUTENANTS CHARLES RICE AND CHARLES ZUHUSKI HELD A PRESSER TO DISCUSS THEIR TREATMENT. RICE SAID THAT DURING HIS INTERROGATION SESSIONS WHEN EVER HE SEAMED THEY WOULD PUT A STEEL BAR IN HIS MOUNT AND KICK HIS HEAD AGAINST THE FLOOR FORCING THE CREE BAR INTO HIS MOUTH. THIS PREVENT HIM FROM SCREAMING AND ENABLED HIM ONLY TO MOAN. WHEN ASKED IF HE HAD BEEN BROKEN, LT. ZUHUSKI REPLIES HE DID NOT LIKE TO SUSE THAT PHRASE, BUT CHOOSE TO USE + GAVE IN +, WHICH HE ADMITTED HAD HAPPENED TO HIM. HE WENT ON TO SAY THAT THE BEST WAY TO COMBAT TORTURE WAS TO BE ABLE TO HAVE SOME ONE AROUND YOU COULD TALK TO ABOUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO HIM.
