Kerry's DD214 form
At this http://www.johnkerry.com/pdf/jkmilservice/DD214.pdf link is a copy of Senator Kerry's DD214. For those non-military type that is his discharge papers. On Fox there was a swift boat liar for * saying that Kerry got his silver star 14 years after Viet Nam. Well his DD214 dated in 1970 shows the Silver Star with V for combat on it.

But more important IMHO is the line that lists foreign/sea service of One Year and Seven Months

1. 1 year and 7 months
most of Kerry's time was spent in deep/blue water as they call it (on the Gridley) rather than the more dangerous "brownwater" of the river deltas.
Kerry had 4 or 5 months of that, but that's like a lifetime in a battlezone.

5. Let's remember too...
that there are many people whose names are etched in granite on the Viet Nam war memorial who were only in country for a few weeks or even less. Harm's way doesn't come with qualifications.

2. All the RNC whores have been lying INTENTIONALLY with their '4 mths' crap.
They conveniently leave out the fact that it was his SECOND tour of duty, with his first tour being spent on a ship offshore. He REQUESTED his second tour be on a swift boat IN Vietnam at the height of the conflict.

Do the Republicans and their mediawhores really want to take the stand that service on a ship offshore of Vietnam was inconsequential? Would they say the same about those serving on ships today?

4. yes!
I think the Thugs are onto something here. They should shout from
the rooftops that:

a) all our troops in Kuwait, Saudi, UAE, Bahrain, on ships and
subs out in the Gulf are a bunch of girlie men JUST LIKE JOHN
KERRY WAS.

b) everyone who got a Purple Heart/Bronze/Silver Star should be
questioned whether they deserved it until they 'fess up'.

c) anyone in the military who doesn't spend AT LEAST A FULL
CALENDAR YEAR *in combat* is a wuss.

:eyes:

I'm sure those memes will be well received by our military...

3. JFK took responsibility for a serious failure, but GWB has no failures
for which to take responsibility. Democrats, being weak, often make mistakes, but Republicans, being strong and always right, never make mistakes, so there is no need for taking responsibility. See, that was not too hard.

6. Hey...?
if...and that's a big "IF"...Kerry was lying about his medals...and I really do not belive that he is...wouldn't the department of Navy be all over him for it...?

Anyone remember Adm Mike Borda(sp?)...he lied about a few medals...the Navy came down on him and he shot himself...

7. On Kerry's page is a DD215
which is a update on medals. All BS type. I believe a lot of ppl in Congress made sure they had all the doc. for any medals shown on any pictures of them, especially after Borda (sp)

10. Well, look at that

11. Logically
When Kerry came home and testified before the committee.don't people realize that Nixon and crones had him investigated by the FBI and CIA into all his background. Then when he started the investigation into the Iran Contra affair.....Reagan and bush#1 had him investigated........they know all about Kerry.....I believe Clinton and Kerry are the most investigated men who ever worked in our government.

12. The freepers keep trying to pretend he hasn't released his records.
Another sign of desperation.

13. Did Bush ever release *his* DD214?
I remember very well when this thread was posted, and every DU vet knew exactly where their papers were, while Bush couldn't seem to locate his.
