Well said! There are too many of these scumbags desecrating the honor of the silent ones. Throughout history there have been those bootlickers who actively seek rewards through connections for political purposes, most were officers, most were liars. Let their peers, those who were with them, expose them for what they are are. We owe it to the dead and the walking dead and in this case, to the Corps.

I could never prove it....but I strongly believe that all Gunts know that most Grunts bled more than either Kerry or Murtha -- and didn't work the system to get color.....
The vast majority of UN-Awarded Purple Hearts belong to the brothers that come home with the type wounds that can not be seen.....the wounds in their minds and hearts --- that haunt them to this day... They didn't get any color - yet they still live in their nightmares.
I truly despise the bastards like Kerry and Murtha that "worked" the war for personal gain and ambitions.....parading around with their Political Positions and Holier than Thou attitude --and they're LIARS at best and TRAITORS at worse.
F'em all. They are an embarrassment to the warrior ethic.
