    Admiral Jeremiah Denton died yesterday at the age of 89. Admiral Denton served seven-and-a-half years as a prisoner of war in Hanoi during the Vietnam War. Denton’s name should be known by every American. In captivity he gave something beyond the last full measure of devotion, if that is possible. His is a story of almost unbelievable endurance, courage and patriotism. Here is a short course courtesy of the Denton Foundation that I saved a while back: In June 1965, he began a combat tour in Vietnam as prospective Commanding Officer of Attack Squadron Seventy-Five. On July 18, 1965, Denton...

    Former Alabama Sen. Jeremiah A. Denton Jr., a prisoner of war for more than seven years in North Vietnam, died on Friday in Virginia Beach. Mr. Denton was 89 years old. His son, Jim Denton, told The Washington Post, which first reported the news, that his father died of a heart ailment. Mr. Denton, a retired U.S. Rear Admiral, was shot down over the city of Thanh Hoa in Vietnam in 1965 and captured while leading a bombing mission. He later wrote a book about his experiences. Mr. Denton grabbed national attention in 1966 when he was forced to give...

    The U.S. military’s stance on homosexuality, often referred to as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” has gotten a good bit of attention from the mainstream media. And though the likes of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who has never actually served in the Armed Forces, has made ending the policy it one of her pet causes, there are some well-established voices that disagree with Defense Secretary Robert Gates decision to repeal the policy. Former U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Jeremiah Denton, author of “When Hell was in Session,” who spent nearly eight years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, disagrees with that decision....

    This was written by retired Admiral and U.S. Sen. Jeremiah Denton to an audience at the National Marine Corps Museum Feb. 13th. We are in a struggle for our very survival in America. This book (autobiography, "When Hell Was in Session") presents my ideas of how we can win that struggle. Although the plan is far from complete, I have already concluded that, though we are presently in a bad way, we can indeed come from behind and will win this cultural war. This belief is based partly on the truism that he who is most hungry for victory has...

    QUANTICO, Va. – Retired Admiral and former U.S. Sen. Jeremiah Denton had some tough words in the mess hall of the National Museum of the Marine Corps, packed with fellow servicemen, including some who spent time with him as a prisoner of war in the Hanoi Hilton. In an emotional speech last night about his newly updated classic work, "When Hell Was in Session," Denton said he feared the imminent death of the United States of America due to immorality, lack of patriotism and lack of appreciation for the unique form of government bestowed by the country's founders.

    Adm. Jeremiah A. Denton Jr. is a true American hero. The former senator, retired admiral and naval aviator spent almost eight years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, half of that time in solitary confinement. When forced by his captors to do a television interview in 1966, he blinked the word "torture" in Morse code. He's the kind of man Washington leaders might want to listen to more carefully than the average purveyor of foreign-policy wisdom.

He increased pay and military funding prior to September 11th and has given our troops the support they need in the War on Terror.

These "celebrations" are orchestrated by the Democrats who control the House and often involve singing and dancing. Every one of my 4 years have seen substantial celebrations of Cinco de Mayo (Commemorates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla), St. Patrick's Day (for the patron Saint of Ireland) and Chinese New Year's Day, among others.

    Floor fireworksSome California Republican lawmakers are upset that the Democrat-controlled state Assembly refused to let them hold a Fourth of July celebration on the Assembly floor to honor a Vietnam veteran and former U.S. senator. Republican Assemblyman Jay LaSuer of San Diego wanted to honor Adm. Jeremiah Denton on Monday in a Fourth of July ceremony. Adm. Denton was a Navy pilot shot down in Vietnam who spent eight years as a prisoner of war. He later became an Alabama senator.

    The passing of President Reagan brought me back to Jan. 26, 1982. That was the date the "Great Communicator" first inspired me. I was 11 years old. In his State of the Union address that evening, Reagan spoke of recessions, regulations, entitlements, Soviets and sanctions. My parents nodded vigorously in agreement. I almost nodded off. Toward the end of the televised speech, however, Reagan lifted America's spirits -- and piqued a child's interest -- by talking about something elementary: American heroes. With his twinkling eyes and unabashed patriotism, Reagan reminded me of my late maternal grandfather. Lolo 'Zario had fought...

    When Hell Was In Session
    I recently, and by no small coincidence, found a signed copy of "When Hell Was In Session", by Former U.S. Senator Jeremiah Denton, Jr. The book outlines his seven years as a prisoner of war, and the tortures he endured. He became nationally known in 1966 when, during a sham press conference arranged by the Nort Vietnamese, he blinked morse code for "Torture", confirming for the first time that our POWs were being tortured. Did they make him lie on a pile of naked men? Put women's underwear on his head? No. Here is an excerpt from the book (which...
