American Patriot, The Life And Wars Of Colonel Bud Day

 It is perfectly reasonable to skip my little review here and go to this excellent review

Col Bud Day is the 16th most decorated soldier in US military history. The book gives a detailed and often shocking review of his eventful, courageous, and as a POW in N Vietnam, very painful life. 

As a POW he was a cellmate of John McCain, and although they remained friends as McCain rose in politics and sank in honor, it gives a calm appraisal of their clear differences in character. 

I was surprised to see a calm and as unbiased as possible appraisal of "reminiscent of Genghis Khan", John Kerry who traitorously and falsely betrayed US POWs as they languished in the "Hanoi Hilton", extending by at least 2 years their painful incarceration for political gain. 

I was surprised to see Dick Rutan was also a "Misty" fighter pilot in Vietnam. The "Misties" were a the pioneering "Forward Air Control", a group formed and honed by their leader "Misty 1", Bud Day. Dick Rutan was the less famous brother of Burt Rutan, famous aircraft designer. Dick flew "Voyager", the first aircraft to fly around the world without refuelling. 

Bud Day appears near the end of this "Stolen Honor" mini documentary that does a good job of covering the suppressed and often maligned story of John Kerry's attempt to gain the US presidency based on his traitorous military "service", including his audacious "John Kerry reporting for duty" scam at the 2004 Democratic convention, 

If you have any interest in the kind of men we depend on to defend this less and less "under God" nation, this gives a real insite. Since our nation dropped prayer in school with Engel v. Vitale, 370 U.S. 421 (1962), our military record has suffered. 1st Samuel 2:9 "He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked ones shall be cut off in darkness, for not by might shall a man prevail."

Without God, we will not prevail. Pray that like the Israelites, we will return to God. I pray that our well deserved punishment will not be as terrible as theirs often was.
