A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Hero, patriot, Medal of Honor winner -- Stockdale dead at 81: The Union-Tribune obituary is here.


Stockdale, the highest-ranking naval officer captured during the war, was forced to wear heavy, viselike leg irons for two years. He was tortured and spent four years in solitary confinement.

To avoid being used in a propaganda film, Stockdale smashed his face with a mahogany stool. After the death of Ho Chi Minh, he broke a pane of glass in an interrogation room and slashed his wrists until he passed out.

Stockdale's captors responded by easing off him and the other POWs.


Rest in peace.
