• Iowa Lost a Hero in Bud Day

    Colonel Bud Day, a Sioux City native and true American war hero, passed away today. Col Day was one of the most decorated living veterans, having been awarded the Medal of Honor and Air Force Cross. He served with honor and courage in the famed Hanoi Hilton, and secured health benefits for all vets while in retirement. My family and I had the honor of meeting him at an Air Force Band concert honoring living legends. You couldn’t have found a more down to earth and humble man, with a fighter pilot twinkle in his eye. RIP Colonel Day.
