Vietnam Veterans, POW Speaks in Newnan

Kiwanian Don Chapman tells a lot of jokes and is the butt of a lot of jokes, but it was all serious in May of 1967, when he was flying beside Bill Bailey in Vietnam and Bailey's plane was hit.

Bailey was immediately captured and taken to Hanoi where he was tortured for three days and spent the next six years as a prisoner of war.

Bailey was the speaker at a recent Newnan Kiwanis Club luncheon at the Newnan Country Club.
