Shame on the Swift Boat Veterans for Bush
John Kerry saved my life. Now his heroism is being questioned.
BY JIM RASSMANN
Tuesday, August 10, 2004 12:01 a.m. EDT
I came to know Lt. John Kerry during the spring of 1969. He and his swift boat crew assisted in inserting our Special Forces team and our Chinese Nung soldiers into operational sites in the Cau Mau Peninsula of South Vietnam. I worked with him on many operations and saw firsthand his leadership, courage and decision-making ability under fire.
On March 13, 1969, John Kerry's courage and leadership saved my life.
While returning from a SEA LORDS operation along the Bay Hap River, a mine detonated under another swift boat. Machine-gun fire erupted from both banks of the river, and a second explosion followed moments later. The second blast blew me off John's swift boat, PCF-94, throwing me into the river. Fearing that the other boats would run me over, I swam to the bottom of the river and stayed there as long as I could hold my breath.
When I surfaced, all the swift boats had left, and I was alone taking fire from both banks. To avoid the incoming fire, I repeatedly swam under water as long as I could hold my breath, attempting to make it to the north bank of the river. I thought I would die right there. The odds were against me avoiding the incoming fire and, even if I made it out of the river, I thought I'd be captured and executed. Kerry must have seen me in the water and directed his driver, Del Sandusky, to turn the boat around.Read more ›
John Kerry served in Vietnam. Bush did not... and that's it!
And why did Bush say that the war in Iraq cannot be won? Has he gone mad? Of course it can be won! I bet that if Bush would have stayed in Afghanistan and captured Bin Laden, that would have broken the confindense of these terrorists.
Again John Kerry can only do better than George W. Bush as I don't think any president can stoop that low. John F. Kerry is a confident man, and that is what we need in America... especially in these times of crisis.
Or you can believe just a few veterans handpicked by Kerry. Kerry has changed his stories several times.
Less than 4 months in VIet Nam and he accrued 3-purple hearts, a bronze star, AND a silver star ? And he has no visible lasting wounds or scars ? LOL. Doesn't even pass the "smell test". What a racquet- as commanding officer you get to write up your own reports and nominate yourself for medals. Nevermind that he had to "shop" around for officers to approve his request.
Do you know all the medals that McCain has ? Dole ? George HW Bush ? Franks ? .......Of course not. Because REAL heroes are RELUCTANT heroes. Real war heroes do not feel the need to walk around and advertise and brag about what their medals are. Real heroes would REFUSE to leave their comrades behind over "band aid" type wounds. ESPECIALLY if they are commanding officers of a unit, as Kerry was. REAL heroes wouldnt abandon their units over after months because of "bandaid" type scratches. Imagine the morale of the crew after the CO cuts and runs with no real injuries.
REAL heroes wouldn't come home and accuse all veterans of atrocities. REAL heroes would REPORT the atrocities WHEN they see them, as Kerry claimed.
Funny- but Kerry didn't mention any of these things yet during his campaign....He only wants the GOOD PARTS (ie war "hero") mentioned, but not the BAD and more recent (Anti-war activists who smeared ALL vets).Read more ›
Why I will vote for John Kerry for President
By JOHN EISENHOWER
The Presidential election to be held this coming Nov. 2 will be one of extraordinary importance to the future of our nation. The outcome will determine whether this country will continue on the same path it has followed for the last 3½ years or whether it will return to a set of core domestic and foreign policy values that have been at the heart of what has made this country great.
Now more than ever, we voters will have to make cool judgments, unencumbered by habits of the past. Experts tell us that we tend to vote as our parents did or as we "always have." We remained loyal to party labels. We cannot afford that luxury in the election of 2004. There are times when we must break with the past, and I believe this is one of them.
As son of a Republican President, Dwight D. Eisenhower, it is automatically expected by many that I am a Republican. For 50 years, through the election of 2000, I was. With the current administration's decision to invade Iraq unilaterally, however, I changed my voter registration to independent, and barring some utterly unforeseen development, I intend to vote for the Democratic Presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry.
The fact is that today's "Republican" Party is one with which I am totally unfamiliar. To me, the word "Republican" has always been synonymous with the word "responsibility," which has meant limiting our governmental obligations to those we can afford in human and financial terms.Read more ›
