He's one of the most well known Valley servicemen to hit the front lines.
Nick or Nikki Rowe was a prisoner of war for 5 years in the jungles of Vietnam before making his escape.
Today his legacy lives on with his name etched in stone on the Vietnam Veterans wall and on his namesake McAllen school.
That very school will honor him and thousands of others this Veteran's Day in a play.
Mark Watson, director of the Theater Department at Nikki Rowe High School to explain what you can expect.
