Red McDaniel was one of the most brutally tortured prisoners of the Vietnam War.

He is the author of Scars and Stripes, a book telling about his six years in a communist prison.
When Red McDaniel returned home from Vietnam, he was awarded the Navy’s highest award for bravery, the Navy Cross. Among his other military decorations are two Silver Stars, the Legion of Merit with Combat “V”, the Distinguished Flying Cross, three Bronze Stars with Combat “V”, and two Purple Hearts for wounds received at the hands of the North Vietnamese torturers.
