    Not since Admiral James Stockdale, Ross Perot’s VP candidate, appeared at the 1992 Vice Presidential debate has an honorable Vietnam veteran been so abused. But when you have a Democratic machine willing to undermine the U.S. Constitution in order to get rid of a president they don’t like, nobody should be surprised to find out that Robert Mueller was hijacked for his “conservative” credentials to put his imprimatur on the Independent Counsel’s Report. Then he was put on mothballs while his partisan staff of Trump haters set about trying to remove the duly elected President from office. Sadly Bob Mueller...

    The Fallen Hero and the Living Traitor By Lt. Col. Gordon Cucullu August 2, 2005 Here is yet another case of the kind of bizarre juxtaposition that continues to characterize the Vietnam War well into the first decade of the new century. I refer on the one hand to the recent loss of Admiral James B. Stockdale, a highly decorated Navy aviator and prisoner of war of the North Vietnamese for seven grueling years. His funeral services were held, appropriately, on the Navy carrier the USS Ronald Reagan with the full military honors the Medal of Honor winner deserved....
  • Joe Galloway: To Two Viet War Icons: Rest in Peace (Gen Westmoreland and Vice Admiral Stockdale)

    WASHINGTON - This is a tale of two men who were -- each in his own way -- icons of America's searing and bitter experience in Vietnam. Both left us this month, one at age 81 the other at age 91, and they left us wondering what it all meant and what they meant to us. One was a symbol of a nation's failure to succeed in its costly and bloody mission in Vietnam. The other was a symbol of gritty personal courage and simple personal honor while a seemingly helpless prisoner of America's enemies in that war. Gen. William...

    ANNAPOLIS -- Retired Navy Vice Adm. James Stockdale, one of the country's most decorated Vietnam war veterans and a one-time vice presidential candidate, was buried Saturday at the Naval Academy.

Stockdale, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease, was 81. For 7 1/2 years, Stockdale was a POW at the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" prison, four of those years spent in solitary confinement; on several occasions, he was singled out for torture. He...

    Mourners Remember James Stockdale, Vietnam POW and Perot Running Mate The Associated Press Published: Jul 16, 2005 CORONADO, Calif. (AP) - Military officials and family members gathered atop an aircraft carrier Saturday to remember retired Vice Adm. James Stockdale, the highly decorated Navy officer who was Ross Perot's running mate in the 1992 presidential race. The mourners made no mention of Stockdale's bid for vice president during the memorial service aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, focusing instead on his military career, which included spending 7 1/2 years in a North Vietnamese prison and being awarded the Medal of Honor for...

    Empowered by captivity Stockdale, honored today, and other POWs left Vietnam resilient By Rick Rogers UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER July 16, 2005 The words trigger images of haggard, pajama-clad men being herded before cameras by their captors. Of accounts detailing torture at the infamous Hanoi Hilton prison. Of joyous family reunions on tarmacs across the United States. Although the scenes are 32 years old, they never have been updated in the American public's psyche and remain suspended like a half-finished bridge or a ghostly image on a TV set. What became of the 566 U.S. military POWs released during Operation Homecoming...
