American Patriot: The Life and Wars of Colonel Bud Day : In the course of his military career, through World War II, Korea, and then Vietnam, Bud Day received every available combat medal, escaped death on no fewer than seven occasions, and spent sixty-seven months as a POW in the infamous Hanoi Hilton, where his roommate was John McCain. Despite horrendous torture, Day would not break. He became a hero to POWs everywhere - a man who fought without pause, a prisoner at war. But Day's story didn't end when he returned home from Vietnam. He became a passionate advocate for veteran's rights, a champion of all who served their country. And when the Clinton administration cut veterans' medical benefits, Bud Day knew that - however weary his bones - it was time to suit up for a new battle, this time against an opponent he had never expected to face: the United States government.
