Fellow POW Speaks Out

September 5th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Tallahassee resident Dale Doss spent 5 years in the same Vietnamese prison camp where John McCain was held. Doss spent his first two years in solitary, but was in a cell directly behind the GOP Presidential hopeful. They communicated by tapping on cement walls and Doss says his experience gave him an appreciation for how much a man could endure.

They knew who they had AND he was a marked man, you might say, If they could convert him to for him to make tapes against the war say that the war was bad to make this propaganda because thats what they wanted us to do. Thats why they captured us. So they worked on him hard for that kind of propaganda, if they could do that it would be a real coup for them and he denied them that, hes a tough cookie, he was in pain, says Doss.

Before retiring, Doss spent 17 years working on veterans programs for Leon County.
