John Doe (Chinese submariner)
The Chinese submariner was a member of the crew of the Chinese SSN-37-1A captured off the coast of Point Lookout. He demonstrated extreme fortitude when tortured by U.S. troopers at Camp Turtledove, but was unable to kill himself to avoid further questioning, as the cyanide capsule hidden in his molar was a dud.

This guy's demonstrating extraordinary fortitude for a relatively low-ranking grunt. Can't say the Chinese don't make good soldiers out of their boys. I'm sure this one would have gone the same way as his skipper if the cyanide capsule in his molar hadn't been a dud."
