When last we left Government Department Academic Coordinator Lynne Atkinson '81, she was bound for Florida to meet the American POW whose bracelet she wore 40 years ago as a young girl.
Colleagues in the department chipped in to help pay for her trip south, and Wednesday, April 1, 2009, Atkinson met her POW, Capt. Luis "Jerry" Chirichigno, in Naples, Fla.
A news crew from local television station NBC-2 was there for the emotional meeting.
