Hereford Texas USA POW Camp

Hereford Texas 1 cent

The POW camp in Hereford Texas was opened June 1943 and operated until February 1946.  The camp held 2580 Italian POWs and was located in Deaf Smith County southwest of Amarillo.  A chapel was built on the grounds of the camp in 2009 and dedicated to the 5 Italian POWs that died during the camps existence.  The only denomination  that I have seen from the camp is a one cent, but probably other denominations exist.
