"the 3.3 million Americans who served in Vietnam is the tainted image of the Vietnam vet as scruffy, jobless, homeless, mentally unstable, addicted, suicidal, and stranded on the fringes of society. It is an image that has been reinforced by innumerable TV dramas, movies, and newscasts."
A study in the 1990s showed that the VietNam veteran was more likely to be employed, happy, stable and successful...than those who did not serve.
I will try to get a citation.
I think he was referring to John Kerry.
I see Dan did alot of exhaustive research on this story, as well.
Youngsters...... Make no mistake about this.... this is your war.... and these basterds did it to me and mine 30 yrs ago..... do you want the same outcome ..... well then get every body up and running monday morning .... pick rather .... take him out .... i have out lined how in other posts..... make no mistake ..... this is about the soul of this country.....
Use Kerry's plan....just frag yourself.
Dan Rather should be shamed off the air
The Rightwing Partisan Media should trumpet this story high and loud.
It would be doubly sweet if Kerry's failed candidacy brought enough notice to the old myths, in the age of a more aggressive, skeptical new media, to smash them forever.
Look for Rathers name in the index of the book "Stolen Valor" and read about his own military "service". He was medically unfit to serve in the Marine Corps in 1954 and he's been mentally unfit to serve as a reporter since the day he was born.
16 yearold SEAL???WTF,there's gullible,and then there's COMPLICIT.
I googled "the wall within" and this is what a vets site linked to after a short reference to the Rather program..This exhaustive article's author died in Iraq covering the war...He was a great loss to journalism in America.

The MSM has been making up stories about Vietnam and Vietnam vets!!! I'm shocked!!
Yes. I understand. I'm shocked too.
(Btw, you forgot to add the proper tag to the post)
My thought exactly. This killer must have gone straight from Wueblo to SEAL.
Oops, I was in a hurry?
Someone should post Dan Rather's photo which is on page 336 of "Stolen Valor." The photo would make a good mug shot if Rather were arrested for his involvment in "memogate."
Rather continues now with "memogate", his pattern of spreading lies and false information about men who served in our military honorably.
I have read Mr. Burkett's book and it is a great resource to counter all of the phony veterans that the media allways drag out to claim that they were baby killers.
