Col. George "Bud" Day, True American Hero
Medal of Honor recipient Col. Bud Day died this past week at the age of 88.
He endured five years of brutal torture at the Hanoi Hilton during the Vietnam War and never broke.
Col. Bud Day wrote over ten million Americans in a 2 year period as a spokesman for the now expired Americans for a Sound Foreign Policy headed by the late author and former communist turned patriot Phillip Abbott Luce explaining in detail the betrayal of Prisoners of War by Jane Fonda during the Vietnam War in which Col. Day was a prisoner held by the Communists.
Eugene Delgaudio president of Public Advocate said, "No other retired military hero has been as forceful and consistently a humble personal witness against American traitor Jane Fonda throughout the past 40 years as Col. Bud Day. The focus of Jane Fonda's active abuse and mocking of men held captive by an enemy of the American people was personally attested to by Col. Day, who, himself, risked death to stand up to his captors, even while in the hands of Communists who tortured him. We salute your steadfast detailed testimony about the blood spilled and on the hands of Jane Fonda and we are all humbled by your brave example, may you rest in God's hands now."
Sarah Palin said "Medal of Honor recipient Col. George "Bud" Day passed away yesterday. I had the honor of meeting Col. Day". John McCain said "My stmt on the passing of Colonel Bud Day, my friend and the bravest man I ever knew."
The New York Times reported:
Colonel Day received the Medal of Honor for his escape and evasion, brief though it was, and his refusal to yield to his tormentors.
"Colonel Day was totally debilitated and unable to perform even the simplest task for himself," the citation read. "Despite his many injuries, he continued to offer maximum resistance. His personal bravery in the face of deadly enemy pressure was significant in saving the lives of fellow aviators who were still flying against the enemy."
