The truth is about to come out, or is out already: Kerry's war claims are fake or at least are greatly exaggerated. Kerry served in Viet Nam for only four months. He collected a bronze star, a silver star and three purple hearts. However, he got these awards by repeatedly applying for them. He used his three purple hearts as the basis to be sent home early, eight months before he had completed his tour of duty, and then he got out of military service early so that he could run for Congress.
Men who have fought in wars and have seen serious combat rarely talk about it. Five of my uncles were military officers in World War II. Three of them saw heavy combat. My Uncle Newell fought in the Battle of the Bulge where almost all of the other men in his unit died in that battle. My Uncle Edward fought in the invasion of Iwo Jima. My Uncle Alden was a B-29 Pilot who flew 30 bombing missions over Japan and flew on the mission but in a different bomber during which the A-Bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.
When they came home, did they brag about their service to their country? No! They rarely if ever spoke of it. They never talked about the battles in which they had fought or about the men whom they had seen die.
Senator John Kerry talks endlessly about his war record, about how he was wounded three times in combat, and about how he knows this or that better than the rest of us because of his war experiences.
How was a man able to get wounded three times in battle and survive? Why have not the details of his great acts of heroism in which he sustained these war wounds ever been published? Why have most actual VietNam veterans turned their backs on John Kerry?
The truth is that John Kerry saw very limited military service, did not deserve the awards he got, applied for these awards repeatedly so that he could be sent home early, and has exaggerated his accomplishments ever since in order to get elected to public offices.
