[COLLINS - believes he's adjusting well after 7 1/2 years in prisoners of war camp.] Collins believes he's a better man after years as POW. [COLLINS - doesn't consider years as prisoners of war wasted, because he matured.] Collins plugs hard for God, country and flag. But he still anguishes over loss of family and sudden reminders of those yrs as prisoner.
