Kerry
    #2896488 - 07/16/04 11:46 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

He enlisted(not drafted) in 1966 (Vietnam heck of a time to voluntarily enlist). He did,
indeed risk his life in Vietnam. I'm appreciative of that. I would've hated to
have to spent one day there at that time! He was injured 3 times
during
his brief service. Won a presidential unit citation, and the Vietnam
Service Medal and a Bronze Star (for retrieving an injured man who was
in
the line of heavy fire, while he himself was injured from mine shrapnel
in
the arm too - simplified version of the story) and a Silver Star (in
two
separate incidents, with total disregard to his own personal safety, he
drove his boat up a canal directly into enemy fire within close range
of
the enemy and led successful charges, by surprising the enemy with
these
courageous charges.) and he won a Gold Star. Do you really want to
compare his military record to Bush's? Hmmm.....

He left the military to try to run for office, which was his plan all
along, I'm sure, but after all that he had seen and experienced in
Vietnam,
he wanted more than ever to be involved in the leadership of our
nation.
And if you think there were no lessons to be learned from Vietnam, go
back
and read your history books.

I come from a military family. I served in the military 1980 - 1984 US Army Tactical Wire OPerations Specialist , My father, cousin, brother-in-law,
grandfather, all served during times of war. Believe me I wouldn't
support
anything I thought was harmful to the military. Believe it or not,
there are military people out there that do not support Bush.
That doesn't make them anti-military.

And on that same note, being anti-war, doesn't make you anti-soldier OR
anti-military. Nobody should WANT war. If someone wants war, that's
a
person to truly fear.

I can't wait for the debates! Bush has knack for putting his foot in
his
mouth. He really is a dufous. I'm sorry, but he is.

Don't be sorry for saying Bush is a Doofus, The dude used to do crack. I'm sure he fried out his brain real good and that's why he's such a meat wad.

why would you compare Bush's and Kerry's service. Im glad Kerry had the balls back then to do something, and be heroic. He needs to take a stand besides Bush-is-wrong-on-everything.

There are soldiers who dont support Bush, but almost all of them do. The moral boost from Bush coming in office was incredible in the military, and it still is.

I was talking about bush's brain being fried. Most ex-crackheads I know aren't as dumb as bush and are probably more adept at running this contry than Bush is anyways.

Any proof on how smart he really is? Any proof on him smoking crack? If he did it so what, his life almost certainly never revolved around the drug.

Really? Well why don't they then? Do they lack something? Drive perhaps? Please don't be an idiot and compare your crackhead friends to the leader of a country.

Ah, you mean the jobless recovery? A good economy is no good without jobs. And we're still heavily in debt, so you can expect inflation to go up, which is basically a tax on everyone.
