USS Pueblo Incident with Ex-POW John Mitchell - Stories Of Sacrifice
Feb 14 2022
USS Pueblo Incident with Ex-POW John Mitchell - Stories Of Sacrifice
Interview with US Navy veteran and former Cold War POW John Mitchell who was captured on the USS Pueblo in 1968 and held Prisoner of War in North Korea for 11 months along with 81 other shipmates. The USS Pueblo (AGER-2) is a Banner-class environmental research ship, attached to Navy intelligence as a spy ship, which was attacked and captured by North Korean forces on 23 January 1968, in what was later known as the "Pueblo incident" or alternatively, as the "Pueblo crisis". The seizure of the U.S. Navy ship and her total 83 crew members, one of whom was killed in the attack, came less than a week after President Lyndon B. Johnson's State of the Union address to the United States Congress, a week before the start of the Tet Offensive in South Vietnam during the Vietnam War and three days after 31 men of North Korea's KPA Unit 124 had crossed the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and killed 26 South Koreans in an attempt to attack the South Korean Blue House (executive mansion) in the capital Seoul. The taking of Pueblo and the abuse and torture of her crew during the subsequent eleven months became a major Cold War incident, raising tensions between western and eastern powers. The Pueblo is still being held by NK and used as a propaganda museum at Pyongyang, NK.  I'm looking forward to talking to John about his experience being held by NK and hear his story of the brutal torture he and his shipmates suffered at the hands of their captors.   Thank you to MyHeritage for the use of their photo app used to colorize and animate these pictures: our podcast, Stories of Sacrifice - American POW/MIAs on your favorite podcast player or visit You Can Help: All money raised goes to support our Podcast and our POW/MIA Family Research where we are directly involved in the repatriation of WW2 POW/MIA's.

Stories of Sacrifice American POWMIAs - In Memory of Bob Dumas EP 26
Bob Dumas 3/9/30 - 2/6/21The POW/MIA community lost one of it’s most fervent activists last week. Bob Dumas dedicated his life to finding his brother, Roger, and in the process became a leader in the search of all American prisoners-of-war and the missing-in-action. His journey would lead to a White House meeting with Ronald Reagan and a very long contentious dialogue with the President’s National Security Advisor, Admiral James “Budd” Nance, which ultimately resulted in, as reported by Dan Rather on the CBS Evening News, Bob’s $200M lawsuit against the President. Please sign the petition below in Bob's honor and help bring our POW/MIA's home!

Stories of Sacrifice - SGT Durrell Tidwell Coming Home EP 25
The podcast you are about to hear was a previous interview I did with the niece of SGT Durrell Tidwell early last year. We wanted to update the podcast about Durrell because we are happy to now say the Unknown graves at the Manila American Cemetery that are associated with his remains and the 18 others who were originally buried along with him at the Cabanatuan POW camp cemetery in Common Grave 212 has received a disinterment authorization from the Department of Defense. What this means is our forensic genealogy research and making contact with the descendants of the other POW/MIAs who were originally buried together in CG 212, their families have provided their FRS DNA to the DPAA and the remains transferred to the DPAA Lab to be identified and sent home to their family for burial under a grave marker that has their name.This process can take a few years to accomplish but the families of Cabanatuan common grave 212 now have closure! I cannot wait to welcome SGT Tidwell home to his family hopefully later this year! Please sit back and enjoy this rebroadcast of SGT Tidwell’s Story of Sacrifice we did with his niece Elizabeth!
