One of the most famous incidents of the Vietnam War didn't happen in Vietnam.

 

On January 23, 1968, the USS Pueblo was conducting a surveillance mission off the coast of North Korea when it was seized.  More than 80 men were captured and held prisoner for nearly a year. 

 

One of those men was Michigan native Richard Bame. 

 

WKAR's Kevin Lavery met Mr. Bame at the VA hospital in Ann Arbor to hear his story.
