FORT BENNING, Ga. (AP) -- They are foreign enemies buried thousands of miles from home, but they are not forgotten. Less than a week after U.S. soldiers were honored during Veterans Day, dignitaries on Wednesday are to gather and salute the hundreds of thousands of German prisoners of war taken to camps in the United States during World War II - most of them in the South.

"The minimum you can do is honor these soldiers who sacrificed," said Lt. Col. Herbert R. Sladek, a member of Fort Benning's German Army liaison team, which hosts "Volkstrauertag" - Germany's day of mourning.

"They were educated in another time period, with another political guideline. In their opinion, they also fought for freedom, liberty and for their fatherland. That's why these people gave all they had - their own lives."

Even if he was, notice not saying he is, should people be banned for their views and ideals. As long as it is not "disturbing" the peace I see no reason.

LOL you're not kidding, what a freakout.

Im glad the German POWs got some respect. I wonder how many POWs stayed in the States after the war? I dont fully buy the "with a newfound respect for America" thing but I know we didn't treat them nearly as bad as we did the Japanese.
