The death of a true HERO and CMH recipient!!!!

Please excuse if this has been posted previously.It wasn't given much coverage but needs to be mentioned.

My bro,Mark is probably the only one who understands what I feel.

James Bond Stockdale died 7/5/05 of complications of Alzheimer's disease.He was Ross Perot's '92 VP candidate and a CMH recipient.

The left leaning media complains about ''harsh'' treatment at Gitmo and Abu Gharib but I never heard them say anything about how Admiral Stockdale was treated:

''His shoulders were wrenched from their sockets, his leg broken by angry villagers and a torturer, and his back broken. But he refused to capitulate.''

R.I.P. Brother!!

... how sad to think many will only remember his debate performance Sad At least what limited coverage I've seen has focused on his service and only briefly mentioned the candidacy. Thanks for the link with more info. May he rest in peace.
