I liked the part about going back for the Army guy who fell overboard. Kerry went back, pulled him out of the water and transferred him to another boat. There was no withering emeny gunfire, it was as quiet as the inside of a church.
The Navy should take their Silver Star back (or whatever he got for this rescue)
Kerry won't get this veteran's (my) vote.
Kerry got a Bronze Star with "V" (for valor) for that.
However, other Navy Personnel have said that he shouldn't have received anything. As 'Skipper' it was his duty to go back for anyone blown off his boat as Rassmussen was, or anyone who otherwise went overboard. And to not go back would have been Dereliction of Duty.
