A prisoner of war (POW, PoW, PW, P/W, WP, PsW, enemy prisoner of war (EPW) or "Missing-Captured" is a person, whether combatant or non-combatant, who is held in custody by an enemy power during or immediately after an armed conflict. The earliest recorded usage of the phrase is dated 1660. - Wikipedia:Prisoner of war

  • Serving honorably in the military is a great sacrifice no matter which country you fight for. Some of those veterans, past and present, have been captured as Prisoners of War. Too many have never returned home. Regardless of the country they served, each and every one should be honored.
  • If you know any that have been labeled as such, feel free to add their profile to this category if you do not know the specific war. If you know the war then please select the war category to use on your profile.
  • Wikipedia:Prisoner-of-war_camp has some camps listed.
  • WikiTree Profiles Roll of Honor

PLEASE cite some sources as to that status, as this is an Honor Roll of those who have made some of the largest sacrifices for their country: The title "POW" is not to be given by hearsay or uneducated guessing. It is a title of great honor and should be documented.

Profiles listed in this category will be validated. Those with no source documentation showing why this honor was bestowed will be removed.
