74. Great reply
During my time in Vietnam I was near several incoming rounds when they exploded. At one of the times I was under a metal roof. It sounded like heavy rain fall for a few seconds. If I hadn't been there at the time I probably would have been hit by shrapnel. I wasn't and that was the cut of the cards.

Kerry was also somewhere where he could have been killed. He got hit I didn't. He got a medal I didn't. That's the cut of the cards. Shrapnel doesn't decide where it goes.

Bush on the other hand got an early out of a stateside NG unit to go to college.
