    One man's efforts untangle WWII prisoners' Catch-22 - U.S. - Stripes
    Moss was a prisoner in Wauwilermoos, Switzerland, but the military perceived it differently. According to the Department of Defense, he and about 160 other airmen sent there as punishment for trying to escape captivity didn't qualify as prisoners. Worse, many viewed the airmen as cowards, a misconception fueled by erroneous military reports and by the powerful literary license in one of the most critically acclaimed novels in American literature.
    Remaining survivors soon to get POW Medals thanks to Congressional action and the untiring efforts of one man.
