Former Senator, Vietnam POW laid to rest story image

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Tuesday at Arlington National Cemetery, family and friends said goodbye to a former Senator and prisoner of war.

Commander Jeremiah Denton was held captive for 7 1/2 years in north Vietnam, surviving starvation and brutality.

Commander Denton was flying a mission over the area when he was shot down and captured in 1965.

His captors forced him to film a propaganda interview.

Denton famously used his eyes to blink the word 'torture' in morse code to let the U.S. know that prisoners were being abused.

Commander Denton was released in 1973 after 7 1/2 years of captivity, which included solitary confinement  in a cell the size of a refrigerator.

He was later elected to the Senate from Alabama in 1981.

Denton was laid to rest with full military honors.

He was 89 years old.
