>>”He wasnt unarmed and he wasnt a teenager. . . .”
I bow to your superior, and direct, knowledge of the incident in question.
Maybe you can clear up some things I have had trouble with:
The wounded VC— at the time he was killed, was he “armed” with a rocket, a rocket launcher, or both? Loaded and ready to fire?
2 During Kerry’s onshore venture, was the boat under “intense fire?” (per the S Star citation)
Bowing not necessary, but appreciated :)
To answer your questions I would ask you to read both the after-action report, and the citation given to Kerry a week after the incident. The citation pretty much follows the after-action report.
You can see that the answer to your first question is yes. But your second question is based on something which is not in the citation.
