I have Chapter 3 of the book. I received it from Human Events. It is very powerful--and specific. An excerpt:
None of Kerrys Purple Hearts were for serious injuries. They were concededly minor scratches at best, resulting in no lost duty time. Each Purple Heart decoration is very controversial, with considerable evidence (and in two of the cases, with incontrovertible and conclusive evidence) that the minor injuries were caused by Kerrys own hand and were not the result of hostile fire of any kind. They are a subject of ridicule within our unit. I did get cut a few times, but I forgot to recommend myself for a Purple Heart. Sorry about that, wrote John Howland, a boat commander with call sign Gremlin.
Moreover, many Swiftees have now come forth to question Kerrys deception. I was there the entire time Kerry was and witnessed two of his war wounds. I was also present during the action [in which] he received his Bronze Star. I know what a fraud he is. How can I help? wrote Van Odell, a gunner from Kerrys unit in An Thoi.2 Commander John Kipp, USN (retired), of Coastal Division 13 also volunteered, If there is anything I can do to unmask this charlatan, please let me know. He brings disgrace to all who served.
Swiftees have remarked that, if Kerry faked even one of these awards, he owes the Navy 243 additional days in Vietnam before he runs for anything. In a unit where terribly wounded personnel like Shelton White (now an undersea film producer who records specials for National Geographic) chose to return to duty after three wounds on the same day, Kerrys actions were disgraceful.
Indeed, many share the feelings of Admiral Roy Hoffmann, to whom all Swiftees reported: Kerry simply bugged out when the heat was on.
I expect it's going to get quite a bit of attention.
