Can they do that to a self proclaimed war hero?
Have we ever found out whether John "reporting for duty" Kerry ever received a DD or BCD when he first got out?
I just got an e-mail asking for financial support to fight this from VVLF.
Like the letter says. They were there for us so 50.00 is on the way to them. I encourage other to do the same if they can.
Last year, when my fellow Swift Boat veterans and I spoke out about John Kerry, you rallied to our side. We will never forget your faith in our cause and your belief in our honesty. It made all the difference. Together we made history.
Like most of you, I believed our mission was over. We could all move on with our lives, return to our families and homes secure in the knowledge we had done the right thing for America, and for our childrens future.
Regrettably, that has not been the case for a distinguished group of Vietnam combat veterans who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with us during last years campaign. Their situation has become so critical that I felt compelled to break our long silence to inform you of this urgent matter.
The Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation, an organization founded by some of the same POWs and their wives who joined with us to form Swift Boat Veterans and POWs for Truth, has become the target of vicious legal assaults multiple lawsuits designed to silence the voices of the POWs.
The VVLF is being sued to punish the organization for the content of the POW documentary Stolen Honor, which contrasts their own accounts of their service in Vietnam and suffering in North Vietnamese prison camps with the claims of the antiwar movement.
They desperately need our help and I am asking, once more, for your support. I urge you to give what you can to assist these truly noble men and women.
It is no accident that this campaign to coerce and silence some of Americas most heroic figures from the Vietnam War has intensified just as the shrill voices of the extreme Lefts anti-military, blame-America-first propagandists are once again on the rise. Even Jane Fonda has resurfaced.
You might ask why the VVLF has been targeted in this legal assault why attack men who endured years of unspeakable torture and suffering in defense of America? The answer lies in the question. These are among the most credible, living eyewitnesses to the trail of deceit and betrayal. All are highly decorated and each bears the scars and permanent physical disabilities of his long years in captivity. One is the recipient of our nations highest award for valor, the Medal of Honor. They paid for the right to voice their opinions with years of indescribable pain, hardship and torment. Their individual histories of perseverance under the direst of circumstances, and their fidelity to the principles of honor instilled in each American serving in uniform belie the despicable slanders laid at the feet of our military.
The POWs' very existence and their willingness to go public threaten the foundation of the Lefts propaganda, a lifetime of lies that accuse the U.S. military of being no better than the armies of Genghis Khan. It remains the Lefts most potent weapon as they continue to undermine the efforts of our Armed Forces and provide aid and comfort to Americas enemies.
The war for Americas conscience and soul rages on in the media, on the streets and quietly behind courtroom doors. In the vanguard of that battle, as they were some 40 years ago, are the POWs; some of Americas greatest heroes; men and their wives, fathers and mothers, many of them grandparents, who have already paid a heavy price for their loyalty and devotion to America and, sadly, find they must do so again today.
They deserve our respect, admiration and gratitude, but most of all our support, even as they try to protect and preserve the honor and reputations of an entire generation of American troops vilified by the extreme Left.
Wont you stand up once more to defend our troops and veterans? Please give what you can to help the Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation continue the still-unfinished task of setting the record straight about the Vietnam War and Vietnam vets.
This is every bit as important as our effort last year. If youd like to stay informed about the VVLFs ongoing work, please sign up for updates here.
Thank you again and God bless you and America.

I don't know, but I hear he was in Vietnam.
Let me guess, these guys have hired Judicial Watch to argue their case.
Lots of people here need to review the career of Bob Michel, the bulldog of a Republican Minority Leader for so many years. Harry Reid thinks highly of him.
Jimmy crack corn -n- I don't care!
Jimmy crack corn -n- I don't care!
Jimmy crack corn -n- I don't caaaaare!
My masters over at the SBVPOWFT are (*&@#(*&WHAT?!?!?! I thought they were GONE AWAY?!?!?!?!?
Oh, how I hope they nail his arse! That man makes me ill.
He's like Autie Murphy to the NVA... they got his picture in their war museum.
Wasn't John Kerry in Vietnam?
John ONeill of Swift Boat Vets knows
that hanoi kerry is NOT done with his campaign.
Q) Why are some "Move On FReepers" convinced they know more than John ONeill and other vets.
"...Like most of you, I believed our mission was over. We could all move on with our lives, return to our families and homes secure in the knowledge we had done the right thing for America, and for our childrens future.
Regrettably, that has not been the case for a distinguished group of Vietnam combat veterans who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with us during last years campaign. Their situation has become so critical that I felt compelled to break our long silence to inform you of this urgent matter..."
Q) Why do some "Move On FReepers" think they know more than Karl Rove?
Karl Rove knew, Nov. 7, 2004 , that hanoi kerry would try to run in '08
and knew Swift Boat Vet's would be called upon,
again, to serve our country.
Rove Credits Swiftvets With 'Energizing' Bush Vote (Thank You Karl Rove!)
Q) Why do some "Move On FReepers" think it is ok for hanoi kerry remain in the US Senate, even though they know he is there illegally, per
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3
Q) "Move On FReepers" "swore" klintoon, hitlery, hanoi kerry, sanbdi ber(bur)glar, al bore, jane beno,
would be prosecuted for
pardongate, chinagate, the bribes in upstate NY in the 2000 NY Senate race, waco, etc, etc,
"when" the "time was right".
Could be wrong, cause I never met him there, Nam or in Cambodia, but I was never in Cambodia, o I probably won't have seen him there.
