Where are you Stanley Warner?

I’m a sucker for creepy, old foreign documents, so here you go, this one courtesy of

[CNN caption: A document from Russian archives lists American servicemen in Soviet custody in May 1945.]

The U.S.-Russia Joint Commission on POW/MIAs has come out and said that the number of Americans held in the gulags during the Cold War and Korean War is in the hundreds.

Sort of shocking, but not really, I think. But what I find strange is this blip in the article:

“In one case, the daughter of a man imprisoned in a Siberian gulag told investigators in 2002 that her father had met an American named Stanley Warner. In 1957, another former prisoner reported having seen three U.S. soldiers there -- one of whom called himself Stanley Warner.”
