They couldn't build a Nursing Home that could keep him locked up

D-Day veteran who "broke out" to visit the 70th anniversary ceremonies has passed on.  His story became news at the time, and he was "adopted" by a bunch of paratroops in Normandy.  He seemed to have cut a wide swath:

When told by the media that it was being reported as the "Great Escape", he just laughed and drove on.  What a man!

Nursing home or prison. "Broke out?"

What kind of a facility essentially imprison a man who is obviously capable of handling himself as this man was?
