Has Jane Fonda redeemed herself?

Jane Fonda’s book, My Life So Far, is the subject of much media interest these days. Unfortunately, much of that interest is focused on her romantic relationships and not her remembrances of her Vietnam-era activities.

Her recounting of her wartime activities has spurred numerous Swift Boat Vets and former POWs to come forward with the facts, information and data missing from My Life So Far. Ms. Fonda’s persistent misstatements, self-indulgent contrition, and historical errors deserve correction from the former POWs who felt the brunt of her actions.

Col. Day stopped by the PC Show this morning to set the record straight!


Col. George E. “Bud” Day, a Director and President of the Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation, is a military veteran of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, and is the most highly decorated living Air Force combat veteran in the United States. Shot down over North Vietnam on August 26, 1967, he spent more than five years as a Prisoner of War. In addition, Col. Day was the only POW to escape from prison in North Vietnam, only to be recaptured by the North Vietnamese in the South. He is also credited with living through the first “no chute” bailout from a burning jet fighter over England in 1955. Col. Day has received nearly seventy military decorations and awards, more than fifty of which are for combat valor, the most notable being the Medal of Honor.
