Lee Ellis will never forget Nov. 7, 1967. That’s the day when, as a 24-year old USAF fighter pilot on a mission over North Vietnam, his plane was shot down. Nor will he forget the years he spent in captivity as a prisoner of war. Quite the opposite. Now, more than 40 years later, Ellis talks about his story of survival in POW camps–and the lessons he learned along the way–with audiences nationwide while promoting hisbook, “Leading with Honor: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton".

The earliest evidence of ancient dentistry we have is an amazingly detailed dental work on a mummy from ancient Egypt that archaeologists have dated to 2000 BCE. The work shows intricate gold work around the teeth. This mummy was found with two donor teeth that had holes drilled into them. Wires were strung through the holes and then around the neighboring teeth.

Hamburger Hill. 23 Nov 1967, Dak To, South Vietnam. Hill 875 Casualty. Swathed in battle dressings, but still gripping his weapon, a wounded soldier of the 173rd Airborne awaits evacuation from Hill 875. American troops captured the summit of Hill 875 (and wondered why) climaxing the longest and costliest battle of the Vietnam war. The battle claimed the lives of 280 Americans and nearly 1400 North Vietnamese. © Bettmann/CORBIS
