It is we who owe you a debt of gratitude, John. God bless you and all the Swift Vets and others who worked so diligently, at great personal sacrifice, to get the truth out there.

To John O'Neill: Thank you so much what you and your brothers did for this country. Then and now. I am so proud to be an American with fine folks like you around.

Please remember that even when the press was calling you names to your face you showed us what it was to be a patriot, a decent man and how to be honorable. You have given us so much.

Thank you. I will not forget you, or the others you stood tall for.

God bless America.

They have our thanks and appreciation. Without their courage we might very well have had Kerry as president.
Instead the Swift Vets call to arms on their fellow veterans to serve their nation once again was heard and answered.

Well done, Mr. O'Neill. Well done.

Not only for speaking out during this election cycle, but also back on the Cavett show which I watched on CSPAN twice.

Thanks, Interesting Times, for all of your hard work, too.

My husband and I have a limited amount of money that we are able to donate to political causes and any donation usually goes to the Republican Party. This year, however, we felt your cause was more just, and it was our privilege to give it to the Swifties.

Thank you Swift Boat vets for continuing to serve our country.

Bravo Zulu to John O'Neill and all the Swiftees!

It was my honor to back you guys and you still have my 100% dedicated support.

I consider this past campaign the final battle of the Viet Nam war, and you and the Swiftees kicked ass john, above and beyond the call of duty.

Give 'em all a sharp salute for me!

I only wish I could given and done more, John. You and the other Swift Boat Vets and POWs did all the heavy lifting and suffered all the vicious attacks and recriminations from the media and the kerry campaign. We will forever be in your debt. Thankyou for once again putting your lives on the line for America. God bless you all!

Thank YOU sir,

You proved that patriots rise to the call whenever the nation needs their service. It reminded me of when Washington was called back into service in the Adams Administration during the undeclared war with France.

What a wonderful tradition you all continued...

Thanks for passing that along and please pass MY thanks to Mr. Oneil, who helped this country not make a massive mistake.

His expose of the TRUTH was an important aspect of the recent unpleasantness which we resolved so well.

I was so proud to do a small part by contributing to the SwiftBoat Vets cause, and attending the KerryLied rally in DC.

I have to disagree with General MacArthur here; Old soldiers (and patriots) don't fade away. They stand in the breech and fight on. Thank God for our brave Veterans.

Mr. O'Neill,

Mr. O'Neill's book , Unfit for Command , was the big wake up call for me about the truth of John Kerry . I had been snoozing before reading his book ! I think I can speak for countless Americans when I say Thanks! for writing that book
and courageously bringing up the issue over & over , often in the face of very un-friendly fire...
Thanks Mr. O'Neill.

It's like a great weight has been lifted.

But I am prepared for an eventual backlash. The dems will never let Vietnam stand as a noble effort badly managed.
