Re: Hanoi Jane
From: E.M.

Just came home from a 40th high school class reunion. Class included Vietnam War veterans from all services, enlisted and one F-4 pilot (ret. Colonel). All believe strongly that Jane Fonda's actions in 1972 got POWs beaten and killed. In fairness, none told those specific stories you labeled as urban myths. But attempts were made to force all POWs to comply with orders to appear apologetic and seem happy to support the North Vietnamese position. Fairly common levels of mistreatment increased in number and severity. All believe that Jane Fonda gave aid and comfort to the enemy and helped DELAY the end of American involvement in the war.
