Recollections of War

It seems one of the “Swiftboat Veterans for Truth” who claim Kerry did not actually come under enemy fire for his medal, Larry Thurlow, in fact received a Bronze star for the self-same engagement. Apparently in the 35 years or so since, he never bothered to read the citation for the award he received.

“Despite enemy bullets flying around him, he leaped aboard the damaged boat…” “He quickly radioed for medical evacuation of the wounded and, while still under fire, with complete disregard for his personal safety, …” Gosh, that’s a pretty impressive stuff! How humble can you get to not read that any time in the last 3 1/2 decades? I guess now that he has, he’ll be turning the award back to the government, since it never really happened.

And isn’t it amazing that so many different people claim to have seen and have opinions on John Kerry’s service, but we still can’t find a single person who actually saw George W. Bush show up for his ANG duty in Alabama?
