During the Vietnam War, if you were a military spouse and your husband became a prisoner of war, you were expected to follow protocol and to keep quiet. You were not to discuss this with anyone except your immediate family.
In the late 60s, a group of wives defied this policy by going public, ultimately forcing the US government to take steps to bring P.O.W.s back home.
Heath Hardage Lee discusses her book, The League of Wives: The untold story of the women who took on the US government to bring their husbands home from Vietnam at our September 2019 Books and Brews.
