To: Hon; All
BTW thank you Hon for posting this article and keeping this issue on the front burner. Kerry should have never been allowed to spread those vile lies in 1971 about the American GI's in Viet Nam. I walked point for the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines in 1969 and 1970 and I had access to Marine Corps intelligence during those years and I can tell you unequivocally that there were no "mass atrocities" or drugs allowed in the bush in Marine Corps grunts units. PERIOD! Kerry is a bald faced liar and scandalous traitor! And that's the bottom line. Kerry should have been investigated, indicted, tried and probably convicted of TREASON! Semper Fi, Kelly

I realize this is a bit late, sir, but thanks for your service. The "real" soldiers who fought the "real" wars are why we're the greatest country the world has ever known. I salute you.

(A word to the wise ain't necessary. It's the stupid ones who need the advice.)
The thing I can't figure about all this is that when I was in the Delta in parts of late 1969-1970 there were damned few US military around. Sure there were Seals and river patrolling in Ba Xuyen and Sa Dec, and guys running around the Ca Mau Peninsula, but it wasn't at all like I or II Corps where jarheads and grunts were literally everywhere.
I would submit that If Kerry learned anything about what was happening in Viet Nam where most of the fighting was taking place it must have been anecdotal. Thus, his tarring of all military with a broad brush was in fact the exposition of his own "progressive" political ideology. It is, by the way, an ideology he still holds dear.
