In September of 2013, I had the distinct honor of interviewing Lieutenant Colonel Orson Swindle (U.S.M.C. Retired). After spending six years in a Vietnamese prison known as the “Hanoi Hilton”, Orson Swindle returned to the United States to not only reclaim his life but triumph over his captors by his unbridled success which included becoming Ronald Reagan’s Assistant Secretary of Commerce.
