"A chapter of my husband's life was opened to me by….A Wartime Prison Camp Log. My husband had related to me some of the information contained in the journal, but not in such vivid detail…I read of men who demonstrated courage, patriotism, unity of purpose, sacrifice for each other, even unto death, and finally the overriding faith in God that sustained them through this life-changing experience. I am indebted to every American who has ever served in the armed forces of the United States with honor, but I am especially grateful to Bob Jackson, Fred Hyrne, and all who contributed to the victory in Europe during World War II. It is because of them that I enjoy the freedom and privileges of being an American."
Widow of Lt. Fred Hyrne
