AACHM Oral History: Robert Fletcher

Sun, 09/11/2016 - 1:02pm

Please take a moment to take our Living Oral History Survey and let us know what you learned.

Robert Fletcher was born on December 2, 1932. He worked for 15 years for the Veterans Administration, then Sears, eventually retiring from the City of Ann Arbor. Robert went into the service in 1950 and, after engaging in a police action in Korea, was captured and spent 33 months in a prison camp, an experience that deeply affected his personal life and work - eventually leading to his serving on an advisory board for former prisoners of war in Washington, D.C.
