These pictures are a representation of a similar prison cell that Lee and three other comrades shared in the Hanoi Hilton. Lee's cell was 6.5’x7’, and the prison pajamas shown here are authentic. They spent only 15 minutes per day outside this cell; when they were inside, propaganda messages would blare into the cell three times per day. How does one lead with honor in such difficult circumstances? Read more in Lee's book, Leading with Honor.
