Subject: Admiral James Stockdale 1923-05

"Who am I and why am I here?" Perhaps the funniest one liner ever delivered by a Presidential candidates running mate. As a fighter pilot, the Admiral flew 201 missions during the Vietnam War. Shot down on 9/9/65, he was captured and taken to Hoi Lo Prison, (Hanoi Hilton.) Spent the next eight years as a POW. His resistence and strength while in captivity was noted. Awarded the Medal of Honor for holding steadfast to the Code and his Country. The Admiral once smashed his face in with a mahogany stool, rather than be filmed for propaganda purposes. His education before and after the war is remarkable, becoming the President of the Citadel in the late 70's. The Admiral was the highest ranking Naval Officer while in captivity in North Vietnam.
