Tony Alva sent me an e-mail with a number of quotes from veterans opposed to Kerry based on his actions during, and after the Vietnam War. Apparently some were offended. But, it seems others were not.

"Scorned, spat upon and ignored when they returned home from battle, Vietnam veterans are finding vindication and a voice in Sen. John Kerry three decades later, several veterans said yesterday. In Kerry, a decorated Vietnam War Navy veteran turned anti-war activist, Hassett and several other Vietnam veterans said they have found an almost redemptive voice." - Manchester Union Leader

"Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry Friday rallied fellow veterans in Minneapolis to kick off a nationwide effort to organize 1 million veterans behind his campaign for the White House. With state Veterans for Kerry coordinators now in place in all 50 states, today�s rally marked the beginning of a grassroots push by veterans across the country to elect John Kerry President. To give something back, Kerry also announced at the rally that he is asking all his supporters to demonstrate their support for military families by contributing to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund � a fund that supports military families who have lost their loved ones in battles since the attacks on US soil. Supporters can show their support by donating through the Intrepid link on Johnkerry.com. Kerry�s distinguished group of state coordinators is made up of veterans who served in peacetime and combat, from World War II to Iraq. Between them, they have received 17 Purple Hearts, 13 Bronze Stars, 7 Silver Stars and a Congressional Medal of Honor. From all branches of military service, the state coordinators have worked tirelessly over the past months to set up grassroots organizations in their respective states to mobilize veterans for Kerry." -Veterans for John Kerry

And at the Dem's convention in Boston....

(07-13) 12:10 PDT WASHINGTON (AP) --
"The convention theme is "Stronger at Home, Respected in the World." It will highlight rising stars in the party like Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley, Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano and Steve Brozak, a retired Marine Corps lieutenant colonel running for Congress in New Jersey. Brozak, who served in Iraq in 2003, has said he changed his party registration after displeasure with Republicans' treatment of Arizona Sen. John McCain in the South Carolina primary in 2000 and the GOP's attacks on former Sen. Max Cleland of Georgia, a triple amputee Vietnam veteran whose patriotism was challenged during a bruising Senate campaign."

Who supports the vets, the guy who lied to send soldiers to war, or the guy who came back from one and had the balls to tell the truth?

Tit for tat... Kerry acted like an ass after his return from SE Asia. Most see it that way. Your ranting will not change this fact.

Max Clealand is an idiot. Don't go there dude, he's local and he certifiably an idiot.
