American ex-POW marks 63rd anniversary of capture by Germans

-A A +A
By Jeff M. Hardison

Sitting comfortably at his dining room table in his home west of Chiefland, 83-year-old Raymond O. Knisley Jr. spoke on Dec. 31, 2007 about a life-changing event that happened to him on Dec. 31, 1944.

New Year's Eve 1944 was 63 years ago, but Knisley remembers being captured by German soldiers during World War II -- like it was yesterday.

It was about 2 a.m. on Jan. 1, 1945 when the Army private heard small arms fire, he said.
