Eight days ago, Air Force Colonel George Everett “Bud” Day passed away. He was a hero; as Mary Katherine Ham put it, “a veteran of World War II and Vietnam, a combat pilot famous for his defiance in the face of five years of torture in the Hanoi Hilton, a veterans advocate…” – and a man who received the Medal of Honor.
Not least of his accomplishments was in the 2004 Presidential campaign, when Col. Day helped educate Americans about the lying (and treasonous) John F. Kerry. Col. Day was part of the Swift Vets and POWs for Truth, which exposed Kerry and which, to this day, suffers left-wing slander for it. (I mentioned Col. Day in an early guest post on the Swift Vets.)
Col. Day was also a staunch McCain supporter – but hey, no one is perfect. Thank you, Col. Day, for your many services to America! God bless you!
