"...you, sir, are no war hero"

"...you, sir, are no war hero"

Jay Bryant at Townhall.com reprints a letter from one of John Kerry's constituants, Glenn Lackey, a retired Army colonel and veteran of Vietnam (1968-69), Somalia, and the Gulf War. Lackey points out that Kerry spoke as an authority on conditions all over Vietnam after four months on a narrow section of river. Then he summarizes Kerry's slander:
I have children, and my children have children. They will, perhaps, stumble upon your words, much as one might stumble upon a pile of dog droppings. I do not relish the thought of having to explain that your "experiences" are either a bald-faced lie, or you belong to that less-than-1% of Viet Nam veterans who committed war crimes/atrocities.
