Sorry, C.U.—I certainly don't want to blacken anyone's name unjustifiably. Skimming through the wikipedia artcile, I can see that a lot of this is indeed hearsay and one guy's word against another.

As Mike brought up, however, the reputation Kerry has with many servicemen including my spouse comes from the time when he threw his medals away and started denouncing the war—AFTER the anti-war, anti-Nixon movement became fashionable with the main stream media—to their minds as a tool to get into office, while they were still under fire or returning home to be called baby killers. This is an emotional assessment, and how strictly factual it is I don't know.

If he also wrote an essay that can move human beings to stop senselessly killing each other, I can respect the achievement even if perhaps I question the motive.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
