Col Bud Day, USAF (Ret) (POW) (MOH) (AFC)----a Heroes' Hero

 Many of the 26 million Veterans in the nation were notified, that on Saturday, the Republic lost a unique American Patriot and loyal supporter of the US military establishment, Col Bud Day, USAF (Ret) (Vietnam POW) (Medal of Honor) (Air Force Cross) (Air Force Distinguished Service Medal) (Silver Star Medal)(Legion of Merit) (Distinguished Flying Cross) (4 Bronze Star Medals with Combat “V”) (Defense Meritorious Medal) (4 Purple Heart Medals) (10 Air Medals) (Prisoner of War Medal) (44 other medals were awarded for dedicated combat service in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam).  Col Day was a very early financial supporter of the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC; he called from time to time to provide us with his leadership skills, and valued advice.  He is the only American who ever made a donation to “every” endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, regardless of the state they were running in, and regardless of whether or not they had a chances of winning their Senate or Congressional races.

When Col Day’s wife, family, fellow POWs, former comrades in arms, and close friends are experiencing such a loss, there is very little anyone can say to relieve their sorrow; he will be remembered by them with abiding affection and love.  Col Day’s passing as the poets tell us ---diminishes mankind.  A verse from Shakespeare is appropriate to describe Col Day’s passing; “Good night sweet prince, flights of Angels sing three to thy rest.”  Now those Angels have the pleasure of his company, and rejoice. 

The below listed link summarizes Col Day’s remarkable life and was forwarded by his close personal friend and the Senior Advisor to the Board of Directors of the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC,  Lt Col Orson Swindle, USMC (Ret) (POW).   The overwhelming number of Veterans who have been notifying us of their sorrow at Col Day’s passing, the  Board of Directors of the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC, and all the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress who benefited from Col Days generosity over the last 4 years extend to Col Day’s wife and family, their warmest, and most sincere sympathy.  May the Good Lord bless Col Day and rest his noble soul.
