Transcript Strangers in a strange land is an appropriate description of the returning Prisoners of War from Vietnam. With the end of the War, America welcomed men home who had been held prisoner for as long as eight years. These men faced a difficult adjustment in returning to an unrecognizable home. Few of the men had seen mini skirts, X rated films, or space capsules. These men have not seen an American car since the early '60's and few could recognize their home towns because of the removal of old buildings and the construction of new ones. They had to grasp the fact that man has set foot on the moon, that a new man is sitting in the White House, the same man who lost the Presidential race in I960, and that America has undergone serious moral change. In viewing the college campuses that underwent so much unrest during the late "60's, with protests against the war, the men will find a calmed hushed atmosphere prevailing and student attitudes changed from destruction to responsibility. Students at UH participated in several money raising drives to aid those Vietnamese children born with American fathers returning home, never knowing his child. This child if not helped faces a struggle for survival in the streets as a beggar in a poor war scarred country. P.O.W. Lewis returns home to Houston. ill UL ghrTsthas ■^t Agnes Arnold Hall was the sight of this booth urging students to give to the Vietnamese American Children's Fund 134
