    Maybe it should have said "southpaw" instead of "lefty" given the current use of that term. :D

    Surprisingly most US States had German and Italian POW camps. There are a few buildings still hanging around, interestingly almost all of them were housed in clapboard buildings covered in tar paper. Saw one in Wyoming a few years ago that was still in excellent condition. My wife's parents and all of her aunts and uncles were housed in POW camps in Calif and Arizona. Nebraska had around 20 POW camps to provide labor for local farmers. One large German POW Camp in Alabama was disbanded in 1944/45 but many of the POW's requested citizenship and there are several German communities still there today, with a German flavored accent.

    Wikipedia has the story about WWII POW Camps.

    Bridges around Ft Knox that were built by German POWs We got to practice simulating blowing up (had to figure out how much explosive to use)/dropping bridges. Solid stone arch bridges. Pretty impressive structures. Most everyone underestimated the amount of explosives required due to the robust nature of the build.
