Now, he's what I call a man. And a hero.

Stockdale wrote a book about the VietNam prison camps, in it
he talked of someone, who was a coward, it has been years since I read it, but I can still see it.
It happened to turn up in a Readers Digest Condensed book.
It has a name that sounds like a romance book, but it is the truth about real life.
It is a book that should be read.

I remember Admiral Stockdale from the Vice Presidential debate in 1992, when he was Ross Perot's VP nominee on the Reform Party ticket. He turned in a credible performance and I was most impressed with his demeanor, patriotism and service history.
