When Robinson remarried in 1994, his second wife encouraged him to embrace his legacy as a Vietnam War POW. In additional to returning to Vietnam for the documentary, Robinson became active in two former prisoner of war groups, American Ex-Prisoners of War and NAM-POWs. He has also been a key supporter of the National Prisoner of War Museum, and he frequently speaks to active-duty military groups about his time as a prisoner of war. The U.S. Air Force has formally recognized Robinson's legacy and uses his story as part of its celebration of enlisted service and heritage. This chapter pulls together Robinson's personal legacy and that of his fellow captives in Vietnam and American prisoners of war more generally.
