LCDR Purrington was a POW in North Vietnam for six years.
He and Margaret Cashman, a Delta Airlines stewardess, had met for the first tme 10 years ago, and after his release from captivity they became reacquainted. Several months later they were married with Captain Ralph T. Browning, a fellow former POW, serving as his best man.
With an ultimate goal of earning an MBA, LCDR Purrington has returned to college at Southeastern Massachusetts University. Then, he and his wife, Maggie, are looking forward to a future in the Navy.
He says, "I wish to extend my thanks to all who kept faith with us and ask you to keep those listed as MIA in your thoughts and prayers."
