("Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?" -- Abraham Lincoln)
Kerry recieved his first purple heart for a wound recieved on Dec 2nd 1968. His diary however said on Dec 11th 1968, " We are feeling pretty cocky, because we have not been shot at yet." His first wound was from an M-79 grenade launcher KERRY shot at rocks to close to the boat, and NOT from enemy fire. Self inflicted wounds do NOT qualify for a purple heart. If that is not enough, He tossed his medals over a fence, and therefore HAS NO MEDALS.
