 Collection

Approximately one and a half linear feet of slides, photographs, artifacts, audio cassette tapes, periodicals, newspapers, appointment books, military documents, correspondence, and POW lists document Charles H. Schmidt's service as a chaplain during the Vietnam War and particularly his involvement helping the POWs during their return flights from North Vietnam in Operation Homecoming in 1973. The collection materials span from February 1967-July 4, 1983, with the bulk being from 1973. Items of special note are two editions of the Pacific Stars and Stripes. One is a special supplement for 1965 to 1972 that was distributed to the POW's on their Operation Homecoming flight. The other edition for March 18, 1973 is autographed by several POWs to include the longest held POW Major Floyd Thompson, Sergent Ronald R. Ridgeway, who had been declared dead and burried in a national cemetary in St. Louis, as well as Master Sergeant Harvey Gordon Brande, and Sergeant Robert R. Hille [?].
