Kerry Question

A family member served in Vietnam, and was awarded a Purple Heart. In earning his Purple Heart, he spent about a year in the hospital, enduring significant pain, recovery and permanent disfigurement. Like many vets, he wishes not to discuss the suffering to this day. He paid heavily for his medal.

The question is simple:

How many soldiers were awarded three Purple Hearts in four months, without being seriously injured, and returned home? And of those soldiers, how many were the sons of Washington bureaucratic insiders?

Just curious.

For those who ponder the question, Should we be discussing events of thirty-five years ago in today’s presidential election? Yes, when that is the single most significant qualification a candidate provides in his application speech.

This week, the greatest damage to be done will occur, when ads start to appear using Kerry’s words.
