Sybil Stockdale was the wife of an American Vietnam War Navy pilot who became a prisoner of war. Sybil then became a co-founder, and then later served as the national coordinator of the National League of Families, a nonprofit organization that worked on behalf of American Vietnam-era Missing in Action and Prisoner of War Families. In her capacity as national coordinator for the League, she also served as its liaison to the White house and the Department of Defense. Mrs. Stockdale is credited with helping to better publicize the mistreatment of US prisoners by North Vietnam and for helping to improve American policies concerning the treatment and handling of POW families. Stockdale is the recipient of the U.S. Navy Department's Distinguished Public Service Award. She is the only wife of an active-duty officer ever to have been so honored. Stockdale is also the co-author, along with her late husband, of the book "In Love and War: the Story of a Family's Ordeal and Sacrifice During the Vietnam War".
