General Purpose: To inform

Specific Purpose: To inform my audience of your rights as a Prisoner of War (POW)

Central Idea: Although war may be an uncivilized human act, the treatment of Prisoners of War shoul not reflect that kind of behavior, as their rights should be upheld and respected.
Introduction:

In a war with sometimes unforeseen actions taken by our faceless, ever-evolving enemy, you as a Marine may find yourself in a situation that you may not ever believed you would be put in. That situation is that of a Prisoner of War. As Marines, we go to war to destroy our enemies in just about any way that we possibly can. Our enemies wish to do the same to us so is dire that we control our hatred for the enemy especially once our enemy becomes a Prisoner of War. War may be uncivilized human act, but the treatment of Prisoners of War should not reflect that same kind of behavior, as their rights should be upheld and respected. Many have heard some of the history of Prisoners of War, but don’t realize the importance of that history. Without that unbelievably tragic history, ther would be no uch thing as the rights of POW’s. we must learn of the origins, purpose, and rights of the Prisoner of War if we are to be able to successfully understand and uphold those rights.

I. The origins of the rights of Prisoners of War are as tragic as it is extensive.

A. The biggest impact on the origins of the rights of the Prisoner of War as they are today started with the Geneva Conventions in 1949.

1. On August 12, 1949, in Geneva

2. Reasonable Suspicion. Suspect that criminal activity has been, is being, or is about to be committed.

3. Authorization to Search. An express permission, written or oral, issued by competent military authority to search a person or an area for specified property.

4. Exigent
