Read the book about John Kerry by a “Swift Boat” military soldier John O’Neill and Jerome Carsi – “Unfit for Command.”
The Swift Boat Veterans spoke out about and against John Kerry. In 2004 O’Neill was a Swift Boat Veteran beside John Kerry. He supplied the information. I found it at a library in Quency, Calif., some years back and it has bothered me that this man has stolen these medals with brazen lies.
These medals belong to heroes only and the critical injured, not the way he got his.
John Kerry was in command of one “Swift Boat” along with five other men.
First Purple Heart was a self-inflicted nick in the arm. He shot at a Viet Cong half dead on a rock. It glanced off a rock and it came back and hit his arm. No enemy fire.
The second Purple Heart came from (he claims his blood ran down the deck). It did not, as several other men denied it.
The third one, you will have to laugh at this, Kerry and another soldier threw out a grenade at the Viet Cong who were trying to capture “rice for eating” (killing this rice, which later it was blasted hitting Kerry in his rear). “Hilarious.” He lied every time to get these medals. He told them it was caused by a mine explosion. Yeah – a Purple Heart for lies. He also got a Bronze Star to boot. According to O’Neill and Corsi, Kerry never earned the “Silver Star.”
What a lousy liar, he doesn’t deserve the new secretary of state job.
