During the course of his military career, Bud Day won every available combat medal, escaped death on no less than seven occasions, and spent 67 months as a POW in the infamous Hanoi Hilton, along with John McCain. Despite sustained torture, Day would not break. He became a hero to POWs everywhere--a man who fought without pause, not a prisoner of war, but a prisoner at war. Upon his return, passed over for promotion to Brigadier General, Dauioy retired. But years later, with his children grown and a lifetime of service to his country behind him, he would engage in another battle, this one against an opponent he never had expected: his own country. On his side would be the hundreds of thousands of veterans who had fought for America only to be betrayed--and what would happen next would make Bud Day an even greater legend.--Publisher description.

Bud Day is a true hero and one outstanding American from first serving as a US Marine to later becoming a pilot in the US Air Force after college, to enduring the atrocities of POW camps in Viet Nam, leading and enduring his fellow American POWs in the POW camps, coming home and practicing as an attorney. This man is as a good and as tough as it gets. What an incredible story.
