"Even a World War II veteran paused to come over and call him a coward. don't be so quick to believe that this ever happened. I still do not."
I believe it happened. As I recall the WWII vets in the various veterans organizations had a big resentment against Vietnam veterans for some reason. We weren't always accepted as "real" war veterans. Also, there was a whole lot of misinformation and bad press about Vietnam veterans back then, and many people tend to believe the t.v. and newspapers as though they're gospel.

(FR NEWS ALERT .... John Kerry over dosed on Botox and thinks he's Bob KerrEy)
Your are very correct. My late Vietnam Vet husband was refused a membership in the American Legion because they told him he was NOT welcome because he wasn't in a REAL WAR. I will never forget that as long as I live. I cry often over what he went thru. He is with God now and has Peace. John Kerry is unfit for command. He's a traitor.
