Final Jeopardy Explanation – Wednesday, July 10 2024

The statement, “I had been shot down a short walk’s distance from the French-built prison Hoa Lo,” refers to an event involving U.S. Navy pilot John McCain during the Vietnam War. On October 26, 1967, McCain’s plane was shot down by a missile over Hanoi, and he parachuted into Truc Bach Lake. Severely injured, he was captured by North Vietnamese forces and taken to the nearby Hoa Lo Prison, often referred to by American POWs as the “Hanoi Hilton.”

Hoa Lo Prison was originally built by the French in the late 19th century to hold Vietnamese prisoners during the colonial period. By the time of the Vietnam War, it had become a facility used by North Vietnam for the incarceration of captured American servicemen. McCain’s capture and subsequent imprisonment there marked the beginning of his roughly five-and-a-half-year ordeal as a prisoner of war (POW), during which he endured significant physical and psychological torture. The proximity of his downing to the prison played a grim role in the immediacy of his capture and detention, setting the stage for a period that would profoundly impact the rest of his life and career.
