Colonel ” Bud ” Day, Medal Of Honor Recipient
I got shot down over N Vietnam in 1967, a Sqdn. Commander. After I returned in 1973….I published 2 books that dealt a lot with “real torture” in Hanoi. Our make-believe president is branding our country as a bunch of torturers when he has no idea what torture is.
As for me, I was put thru a mock execution because I would not respond…Pistol whipped on the head….same event.. Couple of days later… hung by my feet all day. I escaped and a couple of weeks later, I got shot and recaptured. Shot was OK…what happened afterwards was not.
