Indiana POW

I photographed a POW event in downtown Indy for the Indianapolis Star last weekend featuring five Indiana former Prisoner's of War. All five honorees had amazing stories and here is my favorite image from the event. This is former Indiana Governor Ed Whitcomb who was captured and tortured by the Japanese in WWII. He escaped by swimming through shark infested waters to an island where he eventually made contact with the United States Army.
