Lots of Germans ended up living in America after the war, many as former POW's. I believe there is a story about a DAK pow who still lives in America @ feldgrau.com.
HaEn can probably give us a little more insight on this subject.

You may want to try http://www.kriegsgefangen.de
as a starting point. It is an interesting site (in German and English) and the forum there (like here) is helpful and friendly.
Hope this helps.

Back in the late 70's I communicate with a former German POW who was interned at a camp in Houlton,Maine USA. He was in the 1970's a resident of Hamilton, Canada. I would be happy to share copies of these letters with those of you who may be interested. The correspondences consist of a question and answer format. Just let me know of your interest.

We had a thread about this very subject some time ago, here in the forum, in a different section. There are a lot of links and good discussions about the P.O.Ws, the camps, escape attempts and so forth.
Check it out.
