    Monday Sept 20, 2004 WAR AND THE PRESIDENCY | GUEST COLUMN Kerry smeared a hero: my dad   By CAROL CROWLEY Published on: 09/20/04 Many of you believe dirty politics is the motivation of Vietnam veterans speaking out in opposition to John Kerry. Let me tell you the real motivation. In the movie "We Were Soldiers," the story about the battle of the la Drang Valley in Vietnam in 1965, a young sergeant, Jack Gell, cried as he died, "Tell my wife I love her . . ." and my family relived the death of my dad.

    The anti-war group that John Kerry was the principal spokesman for debated and voted on a plot to assassinate politicians who supported the Vietnam War. Mr. Kerry denies being present at the November 12-15, 1971, meeting in Kansas City of Vietnam Veterans Against the War, and says he quit the group before the meeting. But according to the current head of Missouri Veterans for Kerry, Randy Barnes, Mr. Kerry,who was then 27,was at the meeting, voted against the plot, and then orally resigned from the organization. Mr. Barnes was present as part of the Kansas City host chapter for the...

    A very special group will gather in the nation's capital this weekend before Veterans Day, as we have for the last 15 years or so. We are the Ia Drang Band of Brothers, the survivors of the bloodiest battle of the Vietnam War, and the families of those who didn't make it home. For those of us who were there both a sense of healing and renewal make attendance almost obligatory. These early days of November carry a burden of memory for us. It was another November 38 years ago when the battalions of the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) clashed...

    Holmes: Mel Gibson's 'We Were Soldiers' honors warriors on both sides of the Vietnam War I cringe involuntarily whenever a new Vietnam movie opens. Not so much because Hollywood has been a remorseless critic of the Vietnam War -- there's plenty of latitude to disagree about the wisdom of the American war and the manner in which is was prosecuted -- but because even the best films in the genre radiate disdain not only for the war itself, but also for the American fighting man who went to Indochina to battle communism.

    HANOI, Vietnam (AP) -- Vietnamese officials were meeting Friday to consider whether to punish an actor branded a "national traitor" for starring with Mel Gibson in the Hollywood movie "We Were Soldiers." Authorities in Ho Chi Minh City, where actor Don Duong lives, proposed earlier that he be fined and banned from acting or leaving the country for five years for appearing in the movie, which they said distorted the history and image of Vietnamese soldiers. Officials from the Ministry of Culture and Information were meeting Friday to consider the proposal, and will submit a recommendation to the ministry...

    If you have fed from a steady diet of Hollywood movies about Vietnam you probably believe that everyone who wore a uniform in America's long, sad involvement in war in Vietnam is some sort of a clone of Lt. William Calley---that all three million of them were drug-crazed killers and rapists who rampaged across the pastoral landscape. Those movies got it wrong, until now. There is one more Hollywood film now playing called "We Were Soldiers" and it gets it right. Ask any Vietnam veteran who has gone to see the movie. In fact, ask any American who has gone...
