2nd Lt. Stephen Leopold was Vietnam MIA for almost 5 years before his release

POW Camp 101 is what it was called. The camp was a hell hole located 20 miles outside Hanoi, North Vietnam. It’s where 100 American MIAs languished during the Vietnam War and nobody in the United States knew they were there.
