Pueblo Incident
The history of those held Prisoner of War when the USS Pueblo was captured by the North Korean's in 1968.
List of those held

 

The Butterfly Effect

...on 23 January 1968 – the USS Pueblo was seized in international waters by North Korean forces.   It was only the second US Navy ship to be captured by enemy forces since the War of 1812 (the river gunboat USS Wake was captured by Japanese forces on 8 December 1941).  It remains on the roster of US Navy ships today....


From the desk of Billy Cox, Staff Writer for the Herald Tribune (Sarasota Florida).

Christmas 2018 - 50th Anniversary of the release of US Military personnel from the USS PUEBLO as told by former Prisoner of War, Rick Rogala, US Navy, SK-3, POW- 23 January 1968- 23 December 1968.

Rescue Story in AF Times

Dave "Fingers" Goldfein, Gen USAF AF-CC, and the story of his rescue (1999) were featured 19 June in the Air Force Times in an article by Stephen Losey:
 
"The cockpit recording is striking for how steady the pilot's voice remains. High above Serbia, Lt. Col. Dave Goldfein's F-16 has just been hit by a surface-to-air missile. His breathing accelerates as warning alerts blare, but with an even voice he informs his wingmen of his trajectory as the Fighting Falcon goes down. Only a brief, frustrated expletive betrays the pressure Goldfein feels in that moment. And just as quickly, his voice regains its edge as he tells his fellow pilots that he's going to glide as long as he can before he bails out. Then he issues a call: "Start finding me, boys." And with that, the mad dash to save the life of a U.S. Air Force pilot was on.
