(Human Events) Not long ago, the Romney campaign announced it had recruited more than 300 retired military generals for a special advisory board. Now the campaign boasts the endorsement of 150 of the nation’s most revered military heroes.

150 former prisoners of war have now endorsed the Republican challenger, according to a campaign announcement made this week.

The list includes well-known figures, such as Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) and former Federal Trade Commissioner Orson Swindle, all of whom were held captive in North Vietnam during the Vietnam war. Other names are more obscure.
