Camp Peary (Virginia) USA POW Camp

Camp Perry VA

Camp Peary was located in York County near Williamsburg Virginia.  What makes Camp Peary unique is that many of the German POWs were from captured submarine and ship crews.  These POWs were presumed to be lost at sea and dead by the Nazis.  Secrecy was maintained so that code books were not known to have fallen into the hands of the enemy. A set of chits has been reported to be found but only a 5 cent is shown.
