      A culture of punishment, combined with race- and class-based animus, has led the United States to rely on incarceration more heavily than any other country in the world does. The politicization of criminal justice policy and a lack of evidence-based assessment result in a one-way ratchet in which law and policy grow ever more punitive. The human and financial costs of mass incarceration are. national Law, and especially the. Convention, accords to prisoners of war, shows the extent to which it was able to give these victims effective protection against certain conse­ quences of their misfortune. It. has doubtless not had, and never. will. have, the effect of exempting prisoners of war .

      Prisoners of War are persons, whether combatants or non-combatants, who are taken prisoner during a military conflict or immediately thereafter. Modern laws relating to the treatment of prisoners of war date back all the way to the middle ages. But, the most common source of modern international laws pertaining to the treatment of prisoners may be found in the Geneva Convention. of war to which the main body of the laws of war is formally and indisputably applicable. Most conflicts since have been civil wars, or at least have contained a major element of civil war. The application of the laws of war to civil wars raises both a legal and practical problem.

      The archaeology of war has revealed evidence of bravery, sacrifice, heroism, cowardice, and atrocities. Mostly absent from these narratives of victory and defeat, however, are the experiences of prisoners of war, despite what these can teach us about cruelty, ingenuity, and human adaptability. Prisoner of War (POW) Congress defined a prisoner of war as a person who, while serving on active duty, was forcibly detained by an enemy government or a hostile force, during a period of war or in situations comparable to war. Former American Prisoners of War (POWs) are assigned to no lower than Priority Group 3 for VA health-care enrollment.
