    Next Item: John Lehman


    Let's move on to another Vietnam mission involving John Kerry. This one was a February 1969 reconnaissance mission during which Kerry won his Silver Star. The citation for that Silver Star was signed by the Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, Adm. John Hyland, and it said of Kerry that "His actions were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service." That is pretty much the standard, rubber stamp, boilerplate citation language from the era.

    But wait! Some years later, 1986, to be exact, Secretary of the Navy John Lehman wrote yet another citation for Kerry's Silver Star. That citation read "By his brave action, bold initiative, and unwavering devotion to duty, Lieutenant Kerry reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service." That, my friends, is not the standard boilerplate citation language.

    What were the circumstances that led the Secretary of the Navy to essentially rewrite a rather routine Silver Star citation that from 16 years earlier? Could it have had anything to do with the fact that the recipient of that Silver Star was serving in his first term in the U.S. Senate? Was it the Defense Department's standard operating procedure to review the citations of medal winners who find their way into politics, or was a request made for a more glowing citation? The Kerry campaign says they don't have a clue. They didn't request the more glowing praise. Yeah ... that wouldn't be Kerry's style, would it?

    Just know this. People who know say that they have NEVER heard of a situation like this happening in any other case. Only Kerry's. Interesting.

    • Yeah, ya right! He was not in the Drunk Tank, ok lady poo?

    • John Kerry does not want his service record questioned. This is the reason why.

      Subject: Hanoi John's Military Service

      On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry signed a 6 year enlistment contract with the Navy (plus a 6-month extension during wartime).

      On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry also signed an Officer Candidate contract for 6 years -- 5 years of ACTIVE duty & ACTIVE Naval Reserves, and 1 year of inactive standby reserves (See items #4 & $5).

      Because John Kerry was discharged from TOTAL ACTIVE DUTY of only 3 years and 18 days on 3 Jan. 1970, he was then required to attend 48 drills per year, and not more than 17 days active duty for training. Kerry was also subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Additionally, Kerry, as a commissioned officer, was prohibited from making adverse statements against his chain of command or statements against his country, especially during time of war. It is also interesting to note that Kerry did not obtain an honorable discharge until Mar. 12, 2001 even though his service obligation should have ended July 1, 1972.

      Lt. John Kerry's letter of 21 Nov. 1969 asking for an early release from active US Navy duty falsely states "My current regular period of obligated service would be completed in December of this year."

      On Jan. 3, 1970 Lt. John Kerry was transferred to the Naval Reserve Manpower Center in Bainridge, Maryland.

      Where are Kerry's Performance Records for 2 years of obligated Ready Reserve, the 48 drills per year required and his 17 days of active duty per year training while Kerry was in the Ready Reserves? Have these records been released?

      Has anyone ever talked to Kerry's Commanding Officer at the Naval Reserve Center where Kerry drilled?

      On 1 July 1972 Lt. John Kerry was transferred to Standby Reserve -Inactive.

      On 16 February 1978 Lt. John Kerry was discharged from US Naval Reserve.

      Below are some of the crimes Lt. Kerry USNR committed as a ReadyReservist, while he was acting as a leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War:

      1. Lt. Kerry attended many rallies where the Vietcong flag was displayed while our flag was desecrated, defiled, and mocked, thereby giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

      2. Lt. Kerry was involved in a meeting that voted on assassinating members of the US Senate.

      3. Lt. Kerry lied under oath against fellow soldiers before the US Senate about crimes committed in Vietnam.

      4. Lt. Kerry professed to being a war criminal on national television, and condemned the military and the USA.

      5. Lt. Kerry met with NVA and Vietcong communist leaders in Paris, in direct violation of the UCMJ and the U.S. Constitution.

      Lt. Kerry by his own words & actions violated the UCMJ and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer. Lt. Kerry stands in violation of Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution. Lt. Kerry's 1970 meeting with NVA Communists in Paris is in direct violation of the UCMJ's Article 104 part 904, and U.S. Code 18 U.S.C. 953. That meeting, and Kerry's subsequent support of the communists while leading mass protests against our military in the year that followed, also place him in direct violation of our Constitution's Article 3, Section 3, which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare.

      The Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, states, "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath . to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

    • Combat Veteran MY ASS!

    • Hey Idiot! I think you will find that Bush did his time, in an Honorable fashion! He did not lie to get a Medal, as your hero did! Wake up and understand that Kerry is a Loser, and this Country will be a loser, if we elect this Lyine SOB!

    • I love it...Nice to see these kooks getting the tables turned on them. ..they're gonna pout like little 6yr old girls..LOL

      But screw em..they're anti-American traitors to treat a combat veteran that way.

    • New Democratic Ploy.............

      Drudge is reporting that Janet Jackson is saying that the Bush White House used her boob to draw attention away from Iraq.

    • ****Kerry fought in combat. Kerry was wounded.***

      Kerry defrauded the Navy and is trying to do the same to America. He is laughing stock. He has spent more air time in the past year saying he is a hero than the 4 months he was in Nam.

    • cpl_kilgore , winnlady2001, t2bill, all the same person. BWHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

    • t2 will not like what you said, neither will his alter ego, winnlady2001.
