Mark McAlister of Greenfield, who was captured by Shiite Houthi rebels while working as a civilian contractor in Yemen in 2015, recently spoke about his six-and-a-half months of confinement in a Yemen prison.
Last week’s article, “Mark McAlister recounts experiences during capture and imprisonment by Shiite rebels in Yemen (Part I)” discussed his capture and the living conditions he endured. He also talked about the role his faith in God played in helping him survive the ordeal.
In part II, McAlister discusses being moved from one prison to another, as well as his eventual release and return to the United States.
