Not nerdy but necessary today:
This is servicemen and vets honoring the late Col. Bud Day on Brooks Bridge in Ft. Walton Beach, Fla.
Col. Day was John McCain’s roommate in the Hanoi Hotel. He was a spokesman and advocate for the military and their families, fighting hard to keep the veteran and family benefits promised to our service members when they signed up.
He passed away earlier this week, and it wouldn’t surprise me if the entire 90 mile drive from the memorial to Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola isn’t lined with those paying tribute.
This photo was taken by an old HS friend (Eric Finn) today. I think it’s only fair we not only respect Col. Day, but those who still serve and have served this great nation.
