James Lincoln Wynn (1923 - ) was born in southern Kentucky, and despite being married was drafted out of the Merchant Marine during World War II
He was captured at the Battle of the Bulge on December 18, 1944, and survived 6 months as a Prisoner of War. He was a personal witness to the horrific Allied bombing of Dresden, Germany. Repatriated in late May, 1945, he had lost half his body weight and had not cut his hair or nails, nor had he shaved in six months, because nothing had grown - so deep was his starvation.
