Politically Speaking: Vietnam hero Bud Day endorses McCain

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Col. Bud Day, the Sioux City native for whom the local air field and a downtown street are named, has announced he will support Republican candidate John McCain for the presidency. Day, 83, keeps up with his long-time friend, Paul Jackson of Sioux City, and the two discussed endorsing a presidential candidate when they met to pheasant hunt in Siouxland on March 31. Jackson said after two hours, they decided to endorse McCain, a U.S. senator from Arizona. Like Day, McCain was held captive by the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War, and famously withstood extreme torture directed to extract information from them.
