Ex-POW shares story of forbidden tap code
By Ruth Nerhaugen, contributor
Maj. Gen. John Borling, who was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for over 6 ½ years, will share his story — and the method he used to stay sane and sharp — at 7 p.m. May 20 at the Sheldon Theatre. The event is free and open to everyone.
The retired U.S. Air Force officer will read from his book, “Taps on the Walls: Poems from the Hanoi Hilton,” and talk about his experiences as a POW.
