Military records contradict Kerry critic's charge

Military records contradict Kerry critic's charge
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Military records contradict a critic's charge that U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry (news - web sites) did not come under fire during the battle that resulted in military honors for Kerry, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

Larry Thurlow, who commanded a Navy boat alongside Kerry in Vietnam, has disputed that the Massachusetts Democratic senator was shot at during the March 1969 raid that resulted in Bronze Stars to both men.

But Thurlow's military records, partially obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by The Washington Post, contain references to "enemy small arms and automatic fire" directed at "all units" of the five-boat flotilla, the newspaper says.

Kerry has made frequent references to his Vietnam war experience during his campaign to make the case for his aptitude as a military leader. Thurlow is a member of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, a group that has sponsored a television commercial questioning Kerry's war record
Take Back Your America , it's now your opportunity to show George
Bush, That you have had enough. 4 years of lies, his deceit over
WMD's , reckless spending and a war that has gained us nothing.
Terrorism is at it's highest in the last 23 years . The 911-panel
has found no creditable link to Iraq and 911. Our Administration has
approved of the torture of Iraqi prisoners and yet turned around
only to prosecute the soldiers following these orders. Please take
a minute to visit Take Back Your America open your mind to the
possibility that in November this man must be replaced.
