I would like some help with categories for a POW from WWI. 

, he was captured by Imperial Japan while serving in the Philippine Islands, and was sent to Keijo Camp near Keijo, Korea where 116 other American POWs were held. His capture was first reported to the International Committee of the Red Cross on May 7, 1942, and the last report was made on October 29, 1945. Based on these two reports, he was imprisoned for at least 1,271 days (3 years and ~7 months), one of the longest durations of captivity recorded. Ultimately, he was returned to military control, liberated or repatriated.

You really should add the information from the question to the biography. It was quite interesting to read. Finishing out the Biography might give you more clues as categories. Do you know more details of his military record? That is, a company or squadron. You could add Jefferson, New Hampshire.  If you know where he was buried add that category.

Profile is coming along quite nicely. I can't think of anything else on the POW front for categories. The Jefferson, New Hampshire category could be added. Then any military info that you might have between enlistment and capture that might be added.

Anyway, profiles is looking good.
