My name is Earl Winston. I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and raised in San Diego, California. I joined the Army at 27 as a 12B/Combat Engineer and was deployed twice. The P.O.W. environment nurtures the camaraderie and support system that a service member develops during their time in the service. Now that I’m a civilian again my battle buddies are distant but still there. P.O.W. fills that void and offers new family to assist in my transition. That’s what I need and that’s what I’m getting.
