A Prisoner Of War (POW) is a Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, or any military member who is imprisoned by an enemy power during or immediately after an armed conflict. By international law and several mutually agreed conventions, prisoners of war are required to be treated humanely and diplomatically. However, nations vary in their dedication to following these laws.

Nathaniel Teager was a POW during the Vietnam War who was kept there until 1997, despite the Department of Defense asserting that all POWs had been removed in 1973. (TXF: "Unrequited")
