These photos share the highlights from Lee and his wife Mary's trip to Asia as Lee returns on a speaking and visiting tour of the region. This is also his first return visit to Vietnam in over 40 years since his POW capture and release. The entire trip covered Hong Kong to Singapore where he spoke and shared his story and message of honorable leadership.
On the day of their visit to the Hanoi Hilton, from the ship dock to Hanoi was a bumpy, slow 3.5 hour drive through the region. View the photos as Lee enters the Hanoi Hilton where he spent over 5 years in captivity.
Per Lee’s words that accompanied these photos, “Even with the positive memories of my fellow American comrades as well as the life lessons that I learned during those five years of captivity, I walked through Hoa Loa prison (“Hanoi Hilton” POW camp) 40 years later feeling very heavy and oppressed. Communist propaganda was displayed in the prison stating the great treatment that Americans received while they were. Grateful again for the freedoms that Americans enjoy.”
Next, their trip continues south to Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and then on to Singapore.
