Cecil Phipps never forgets his niece's birthday.
On Aug. 28, his niece turned 65. It was also the 65th anniversary of his liberation. He served 33 months as a prisoner of the Chinese Communists in the Korean War.
Phipps, 88, of Fort Dodge and his wife Joyce will be at the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum in Waterloo Sept. 14 when the museum honors Korean War POWs, both those who returned and those who did not.
