    Air Force Col. "Bud" Day passed away day before yesterday in FL. Col. Day started his military career as a elisted Marine in WW2. He fought in WW2, Korea, and Vietnam earning 70 medals including the Medal of Honor. He was shot down over North Vietnam and spent years in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" prison camp.He escaped once and was tortured terribly on his recapture! After retirement be became a tireless advocate for veterans! RIP Col. Day!

    Heroes never die, they just go on to serve in another life. Rest well before your next tour.
