He would not comply with their demands, so then he was tortured. Wow, from what I am reading about him, I would call him a hero.
The other POWs in his camp tell a completely different story. They called him the song bird. The media spins a different story for him because he is one of the "special" people. His dad and grandfather were both Admirals.
Soldiers have been getting POW training for a very long time. It isn't supposed to be pleasant. If listening to Zeppelin for a few days drove them to PTSD then they should be thankful they weren't captured by the enemy. You should hear the stories my dad told about POW training before he shipped off to Vietnam.
It involved humiliation, starvation and hypothermia as well. I assume the 40 hrs. of repeated music was for sleep deprivation. The soliders are protesting this and I stand by them, mostly because they did not receive any psychological support afterwards. Did your POWs get counselling and help when they returned home?
