52. Response to this "democrat" from a Vietnam Vet with A Purple
Heart who never went to the hospital.
It happens. Wounded is wounded. In those days anyway. There were not silly rules about severity or where you were or what you were doing for the most part.
I was wounded twice, the first one I got a PH, the second time much more seriously I did not. Do I care? No.
Was someone with 3 Purple hearts eligible for rotation.... YES.

If I had 3 would I go.... hell yes.

Also, do not forget that Kerry was a VOLUNTEER for the Swift Boats, this after he had completed a 1 year tour in a Destroyer off the coast of VN, he could have gone home anytime he wanted.

The fact that he was such a good lead magnet may have convinced him to cut it short. I do not blame him.

And I support his work to help end the war wholeheartedly.

If you want to take him on, take him on over this Iraq bullshit.

Stop spewing shit of which you obviously know little.
