This Petraeus stuff is going that direction - down!
Turns out that Adm. Borda was correct in that he could wear a Combat Medal with V since his ship was engaged in direct action against the No. Vietnamese.
I forget who the Congressmen was who persecuted him, but I recall Col. Hackworth harassed him to death. Turns out that Hackworth, a highly decorated combat veteran, was a bit nuts himself, and people believed him.
The media failed Borda and it cost him his life.
What a bunch of shits we have in this country.
