Rocky, along with Lt. James Rowe and Sgt. Dan Pitzer were captured on October 29, 1963 near Le Coeur in the U Minh Forest of South Vietnam. Despite being wounded, Rocky resisted Communist indoctrination, interrogation and torture for almost two years and served as an inspiration to other prisoners.

For his heroism during this period, Captain Rocky Versace was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. General Nicholson is a 1956 graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point receiving the General MacArthur Leadership award and served over two years in Vietnam. He was awarded a Silver Star for his heroism in action saving 13 lives on December 27, 1963 in the Mekong Delta of South Vietnam. After his 30 year career in the Army, General Nicholson served as Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs in the Department of Veteran Affairs where he directed the National Cemetery Administration and also Secretary of the American Battle Monuments Commission.
