Just a few days after his capture, “Johnnie” started the list that would one day make him famous. Several of his fellow prisoners were accidentally killed by American strafing, and Johnnie thought their families deserved to know where and when they died. He used a pencil stub and scraps of paper to record their names, units and dates of birth. Many more were to follow over the three years of captivity. Cold, disease, malnutrition, mistreatment and brutality took their toll. Johnnie marked them all down. A little cloth pouch stuffed with scraps containing the names eventually became a list in duplicate buried in two places. Johnnie’s list was compiled despite great personal danger—the Koreans did not want this information to become known and threatened Johnnie’s life.
