Info: Our guest is former Air Force pilot and Vietnam war prisoner, Lee Ellis. He is the author of a book titled “Leading With Honor: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton.” Ellis shares his past experiences as a POW. He discusses how he and his fellow prisoners were tortured, malnourished, and bombarded with propaganda while being detained for “five years, four months, and two weeks.” He describes in detail the events of the day that his plane was shot down and he was captured. Ellis recounts that during the first few months in prison, he was “scared and cold.” He also shares recollections of the heroic deeds performed by Brigadier Gen. Robbie Risner, Vice Admiral James Stockdale, Paul Galanti, and Jeremiah Denton. Ellis gives insight to the lessons on leadership, loyalty, faith, and forgiveness that was forged into the soldiers during their detainment. He talks about how the POW’s entertained themselves by naming the guards and turning events into humorous stories. Ellis also reveals that he will be visiting Hanoi later this year for the first time since his release from prison camp.
