The Law Office of Robert B. Goss, P.C. https://www.attorneyforveterans.com wishes to express our condolenses to the family and friends of Col. George “Bud” Day.
July 28, 2013, Col. Day passed away after a long illness.
Col. Day was a true hero and a man I greatly admired. He helped friends of mine as an attorney, he fought for veterans all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court that denied a Writ of Certiorari. The case involved fighting to protect veteran’s right to free health care. See http://mrgrg-ms.org/cag-rule.html.
Col. Day became an attorney after he returned from Vietnam, where he was held as a P.O.W. for 5.5 years. His torture left Col. Day unable to return to the cockpit, so he transitioned to the legal profession as a licensed attorney. A journey I too took.
I was honored to have met Colonel Day at the U.S. Air Force Air Command and Staff College during the Gathering of Eagles week. I remember him as a nice leader, modest Colonel, who was a true hero and inspiration. The following link is to Col. Day’s Official Air University Biography: http://www.au.af.mil/au/goe/eagle_bios/2008/day_2008.asp .
Praying for Col. Day and his family.
