Bennett is wrong, of course. He has it exactly backwards. But I would not judge him too harshly.

Bennett served in the 63rd Infantry Division during WW II. From Wikipedia (Tony Bennett was born Anthony Benedetto):

As the German Army was pushed back to its homeland, Benedetto and his company saw bitter fighting in cold winter conditions, often hunkering down in foxholes as German 88 mm guns fired on them. At the end of March, they crossed the Rhine and entered Germany, engaging in dangerous house-to-house, town-after-town fighting to clean out German soldiers; during the first week of April, they crossed the Kocher River, and by the end of the month reached the Danube. During his time in combat, Benedetto narrowly escaped death several times. The experience made him a pacifist.

“Bennett served in the 63rd Infantry Division during WW II.”

I bet he gave them all the “what for” and “told them off” with gusto!

I don’t care about his history, he is not better than JfnKerry and his treason!
