I heard yesterday that Kerry had his own "AWOL while in the reserves" problem. As I understand, sometime after he returned from Vietnam, he went on active reserve status for his last year in the Navy. He was supposed to go to monthly meetings and do 17 days of training. He didnt show up for ANY meetings or training, He also has an extra zinger to his absentees in that this was the time that he went to Paris France to meet with the Viet Cong whom we were then at war with. People have been shot for doing something like that instead of just being embarrassed, so John should be greatful.
John Kerry All tarnish, no "Shine".
He does seem to have a problem attending such things as meetings, briefings, and the U.S. Senate.
