Episode 1084 of the Vietnam Veteran News Podcast will feature a new book titled: “Vietnam Vets: Still Coming Home” about Vietnam Veterans from the great state of South Dakota. A story about the book appeared in The Sioux City Journal titled: New book features stories on Col. Bud Day, other local Vietnam veterans. According to the story the book was written by USD professor emeritus Steve Feimer and Kristine Elin-Cable.
The authors devoted six years to interviewing South Dakota Vietnam Veterans and used the words of the veterans to tell 31 stories of veterans in their 455 page book. The largest chapter in the book is about the late Col. Bud Day. He came from Sioux City, South Dakota and was a pilot in the Air Force with service in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam. Next to Audie Murphy he is one of the most decorated persons ever to serve in the US military.
For all who care about our veterans and especially Vietnam Veterans it is highly recommended to get a copy of this outstanding book.
