    I can't believe there is no thread on this forum about Bud Day.

    He's a real American hero. Compared to the 'idols' from Hollywood/TV/sports figures that Americans worship these days, it just makes you want to puke.

    Read his Medal of Honor citation and Air force Cross citation at the end of this URL.

    I knew Bud and he was a great guy. I think it's a shame every American doesn't know his name as a true national hero. His shoulders, wrists, and hands were permanently deformed due to the repeated severe torture he and the others had to endure. As a pilot, I was able to give him some insight into an aviation case he was working and we became friends during the course of the trial (I took leave in order to watch the proceedings). We then bumped into each other over the years. There's a lot more I could write but suffice it to say; I respected him a lot and was proud to call him my friend.
