Military - P.O.W. Survival Guide
Dennis Gersten, M.D.
During Operation Desert Storm I was deeply troubled by seeing the faces of
our P.O.W.'s on television. They looked so tormented. In response to that
feeling in me, I put together a P.O.W. Survival Guide for our troops. The
idea was that if our troops had just a few mind/body techniques to practice,
they would be immensely aided in the dreadful event that they were captured.
I am excerpting parts of the Survival Guide for this article.
