Skip to comments.Did Kerry's Swift Boat Hatchet Man Fake His Own Silver Star?
Posted on 08/19/2011 8:31:48 AM PDT by Interesting Times
Last August, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus revoked a Silver Star medal formerly held by retired Navy Captain Wade R. Sanders. In a short, vague memorandum to the Chief of Naval Personnel, Mabus cited "subsequently determined facts and evidence surrounding both the incident for which the award was made and the processing of the award itself" as the reason. Such an action by the Navy is virtually without precedent.
There was no press release and no announcement. Eleven months later, a bare-bones report was finally published by the Navy Times. American Thinker picked up the story from WinterSoldier.com, and after Matt Drudge followed suit, it propagated rapidly.

Kerry Wars ping....
This is wonderful.
These cowards who do this are an insult to the true warriors.
I have ZERO doubt Kerry’s medals are fraudulent as well and hope this gets pursued.
Now, someone needs to review Kerry’s 3 Purple Hearts - at least the one where some rice got embedded in his ass.
This is the attack dog who went after Jeri Corsi and John O’Neill...
They should come out with a follow up book about this clown.
If it got embedded in his ass, I'm surprised that some wasn't embedded in his head as well.
Thanx for this - gave some bucks back then to the Swiftboat dudes for Truth and glad to see it did some good.
Sanders is a POS and should be branded as such...typical Kerry pal...
Well, he had a role model to follow
That's been done. See "Unfit for Command," and also An Incident on the Bay Hap River
I am still waiting to see Kerry’s F-180.
He claims he signed it, but no one ever got to see it.
He was in Vietnam for 4 months total , got 3 purple hearts and never missed a day’s work.
3 purle hearts got you a trip home and the rumor is he was told by fellow officers to make the request or he may go home in a body bag
Truth of fiction , he grabbed his “magic hat” and hauled ass back home in time to toss someone else’s medals, and to help Jane Fonda and to meet N Vietnam representatives in France.
Instead of being a convicted war criminal for shooting an unarmed wounded prisoner and for being a treasonous traitor he is a United States Senator today.
Of course they are~!IIRC in the book the swift boat vets put out most of his were got after he became commanding officer on his boat and filed for all of them himself.He knew 3 Purple hearts and you were out....
I have the impression Kerry wouldn’t have ANY friends or connections except the ones his wife’s money can buy for him
You have personally reached back in time to give them a voice in the more advanced technology age and helped them tell their story. As I've said before if the world were a just place you would have trophies on your wall. As it is you'll just have to settle for Freeper Kudos. We're blessed that you seem to feel that's enough.
Keep up the great work!
He probably figured it out after he inadvertently blasted a rice grain into his buttocks.
Kerry is a COWARD.

Make you wonder where the hearts of voters in Massachusetts “IS”... What motivates THEM..
Its like the whole state is populated by marginal people..
i.e. Ed Kennedy, Kerry, Barney Frank, Ed Markey, Robert Reich, Myth Romney, Meehan, and Delahunt..
