Speaker: Tony Marshall

On July 3 while on his combat 266th mission he was forced to eject over enemy territory and was captured. Lt. Col. Marshall’s talk “My TDY to Ha Noi” translated means, My Temporary Stay as a Prisoner of War in the North Vietnamese Hao Lo Prison known euphemistically by American Fighter Pilots as the “Hanoi Hilton”.

He’ll discuss his life in the 13th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Udorn Air Base, Thailand, what led up to his ejection from his F-4 Phantom fighter jet over enemy territory, and his capture. Throughout his ordeal as POW Tony kept his wits about him, and developed a warped sense of humor, thus his title “Ha - Noi”.
