Rep. Miller Honors Ret. Col. Digger O’Dell At “Ambassador Of Peace” Medal Presentation

Last  week, Rep. Candice Miller issued the following statement after honoring Ret. Col. Donald “Digger” O’Dell at the Selfridge Base Community Council meeting where he received the “Ambassador of Peace” medal:  “A few months ago, I had the honor of joining Digger O’Dell and over 300 Vietnam Veterans from across Michigan’s 10th district for a ceremony commemorating their brave and selfless service to this country. These veterans endured the horrors of war because, like every generation of Americans, they wanted peace, not just for the United States, but for people around the world.  “All of our nation’s veterans have fought valiantly in defense of this country and the freedoms and liberties we all enjoy. However, few have sacrificed more than Digger. Shot down during a mission over North Vietnam in 1967, Digger spent 5 ½ long years as a POW in the infamous Hanoi Hilton. For Digger’s commitment and service to this nation we are eternally grateful. He is truly an inspiration to us all. I cannot think of a person who is more deserving of this medal, “Ambassador of Peace”, than my good friend and great patriot, Digger O’Dell.”
