Skip to comments.'V' for valor or Kerry's version?

Of the many charges against John Kerry's Vietnam record made by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the Kerry campaign has managed to keep Mr. Kerry's Silver Star story above water. Chicago Tribune editor William B. Rood came out last week as an eyewitness to the events of Feb. 28, 1969, bolstering Mr. Kerry's version of events, as have official Naval records. Though Mr. Kerry has had to backtrack on at least two of his accounts -- the "Christmas in Cambodia" story and whether he really deserved his first Purple Heart -- the day when Mr. Kerry beached his swift boat and tracked down a Viet Cong soldier seems to have withstood scrutiny.

Figured the New Eng. libs out I think. They are born with a silver star in their mouth, and a purple heart. (Blue bloods?)
The charges, the speculation, your chances...
The fact is that the Swift Boat Vets have exposed the Christmas in Cambodia story as false, as well as the circumstances surrounding his first Purple Heart and his account of what happened on the day he received his Bronze Star. John Kerry lied about these three events and that is why his campaign has backed away from them. Plus we have the problem with his DD-214 and why it shows a "V" added to his Silver Star, as well as an explanation for why his Medal Citations were altered 14 years after he received them.
250 Swift Boat Veterans didn't come forward because they enjoy having the democrats and their "Dirt Devils" combing through their life history in an attempt to discredit them and their noble service to our country. They came forward because they felt it was their duty to defend those who gave their all in Vietnam, only to be smeared by an opportunistic pathological liar who has gotten where he is today on the blood spilled by those he spit on when he came home from his 132 days in Vietnam
The real problem is the DD215 the correction to the DD214 that was released 3/12/2001 does NOT fix the mysterious combat "V" on the Silver Star, and gives his a Vietnam Service Medal with 4 Bronze Stars! He should only have 2 Bronze stars! this man is a total FRAUD! NOT ONE SCREWUP THAT CAN BE SAID IS A TYPO, THIS IS A CORRECTION AND THE CORRECTION IS SCREWED UP!
Well, he need to do something, having fasle documents on your website WHILE running for office! as far as i can tell the DD214 looks old can you find a date on it? The DD215 is from 2001 and doesnt fix the DD214 "v" then ads more lies with the vietnam medal with 4 bronze star's that he should only have 2
Thank God for the Swift Boat Vets is all I can say, because we would not be discussing this right now if they didn't step up to the plate. John Kerry is a fraud and you and I know it, as well as millions of other concerned Americans
when i start looking at Kerrys "documents" i get more confused than i was before! they are so screwy its like a Michael Moore cut & paste job! he needs to RELEASE ALL HIS RECORDS SIGN THE 180! THIS ISNT ABOUT POLITICS ANYMORE ITS A DAMN INVESTIGATION! I FEEL LIKE SHERLOCK HOLMES OR SOMETHING! :)
Mr. and Mrs. Holzer bring up another interesting point. Over at JohnKerry.com, the Navy citation for Mr. Kerry's Silver Star does not mention the combat "V". It appears, then, that the Navy didn't mistakingly grant a "V" with Mr. Kerry's Silver Star. So, how did it get into Mr. Kerry's DD 214? .... ***
Yes, yes, yes.
