I wonder how often these days it gets mentioned about him throwing (someone else's) medals over the wall at the White House. I read often lately about his medals being on prominent display in his office. But I guess that's OK, him being a DemocRat and all....

I searched for it, and the UK Guardian mentioned it, but I didn't see any of the US media bring it up.

"Mr Kerry has been the only senior Democrat in Congress to take on President Bush over the administration's foreign policy and his pursuit of the "war on terror". The senator said he was running because "I have a different vision for where this country is going". A decorated navy veteran in the Vietnam war who threw away his combat ribbons on the steps of Congress in protest against the war, Mr Kerry's background gave him the credentials to issue a detailed critique of the Pentagon's strategy in Afghanistan. http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,12271,861384,00.html

I also read that he wore his medals and flight jacket when he had that operation a few months ago. Who's medals did he throw?
