On February 12, 1973, this great and heroic native of Suffolk was released from captivity after serving 7 years as a POW (prisoner of war) during the Vietnam War. He was an air force pilot, first black POW, and after his retirement from active duty, a successful businessman. Who was this great man? #tbt #throwbackthursday #localhistory #suffolkva #bhm #aahm
