Former P.O.W. David Harker reflects on his experience in Vietnam

The bright blue Corvette in David Harker’s garage holds a special place in his heart. It was a gift on the day in March 1973, when he returned to Lynchburg after five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

His classmates sold bumper stickers to raise money for the special gift.

“It’s just a symbol of people’s love and appreciation for what I did,” he told WDBJ7.

Harker grew up in the Lynchburg area and graduated from Brookville High School. In November 1967, he landed in Vietnam as a U.S. Army rifleman in an infantry company. And just six weeks later, his unit was ambushed and he was taken prisoner.
