"Kerry wrote an article for the Boston Herald on October 14, 1979:

"I remember spending Christmas Eve of 1968 five miles across the Cambodian border being shot at by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas. The absurdity of almost killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real."
"

The shot that sunk a wanna be!

Good job John.

This needs to be re-posted as often as it takes, to get everyone up to par.

Not to mention the absurdity of listening to an address by a President who wasn't. On Christmas 1968, LBJ was still President.
