George Everette ‘Bud’ Day (24 February 1925 27 July 2013) was a United States Air Force officer, aviator, and veteran of World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War. He was also a prisoner of war, and recipient of the Medal of Honor and Air Force Cross. As of 2016, he is the only person to be awarded both the Medal of Honor and Air Force Cross. He was posthumously advanced to the rank of brigadier general effective March 27, 2018, as directed by the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. Day’s actions from 26 August 1967 through 14 March 1973 were the last to earn the Medal of Honor prior to the end of U. S. involvement in the war on 30 April 1975, though some honorees (e. g. Leslie H. Sabo Jr. , honored on 16 May 2012) were cited for their medals after Day’s recognition on 4 March 1976. Having earned over 70 awards, decorations, and medals, Day is considered to be the most decorated United States military officer since Douglas MacArthur.
