The 16 mm film being presented to Col. Murphy N Jones Pow (Former POW that is) Mike “Ringo” Ringenberg was on a mission to make things right! July 2013  Photo Provided by Mike and Gayle Ringenberg used with permission.

original Propaganda film created by North Vietnam during the Vietnam War.  Col. Jones had never seen the entire film made of his capture.

The 16 mm film was set aside without recognition of whom the POW was in the film.  Mike shared the film with a few combat veterans and together they figured out who was in the film.  From there they set out to find and return the film to the POW that so justly deserved to have the film.  Murphy N. Jones POW Propaganda Film was returned to him.

That POW was Murphy N. Jones POW from 1966 to 1973.  His time as a captured Vietnam pilot changed his life but not his patriotism.  Col. Jones and his wife Glenda were gracious hosts to Mike “Ringo” Ringenberg and his wife Gayle, who served as the photographer.  Quite well too, if I may say so!

The couple shared breakfast together and enjoyed the moments of combat veterans.

I don’t think anyone can truly appreciate what Col. Murphy Jones and his wife Glenda have shared over his capture.  We know as combat veterans the sites and sounds of war.  We have no personal concept how to recover from being a POW and be productive in our society.

A big salute to Col. Murphy N Jones POW and all members of the Armed Forces our hearts and spirits will always be with you!

    Mr. Jones,
    Thank you for your service to our country. I attended Westdale Jr. High and knew your son Neal. I was there when you visited the school after your return from Vietnam. I remember that you wore your ” prison striped pajamas ” as you spoke to our class about your experiences, torture, and struggles. I was in awe and still am. Thanks again and God bless you. Sincerely,
    Andre J.

    Col Jones were you stationed at DM Tucson 74-75 time frame as an ops officer for one of the A7 units? I believe I met you in the control tower one evening while working there as a control tower Crew Chief. Would love to hear from you….Welcome Home…..
