    Dear Senator Kerry:
    Since it has become clear that you will probably be the Democratic
    nominee for President, I have spent a great deal of time researching your
    war record and your record as a professional politician. The reason is
    simple, you aspire to be the Commander in Chief who would lead my sons and
    their fellow soldiers in time of war. I simply wanted to know if you
    possess the necessary qualifications to be trusted in that respect.
    You see, I belong to a family of proud U.S. veterans. I was a
    Captain in the Army Reserve, my father was a decorated Lieutenant in World
    War II; and I have four sons who have either served, or are currently
    serving in the military. The oldest is an Army Lieutenant still on active
    duty in Afghanistan after already being honored for his service in Iraq.
    The youngest is an E-4 with the military police. His National Guard
    unit just finished their second tour of active duty, including six months
    in Guantanamo Bay. My two other sons have served in the national guard and
    the navy.
    In looking at your record I found myself comparing it not only to
    that of my father and my sons, but to the people they served with. My
    father served with the 87th Chemical Mortar Battalion in Europe. They
    landed on Utah Beach and fought for 317 straight days including the
    Cherbourg Peninsula, Aachen, the Hurtgen Forest, and the Battle of the
    You earned a Silver Star in Vietnam for chasing down and finishing
    off a wounded and retreating enemy soldier. My father won a Bronze Star for
    single handily charging and knocking out a German machine gun nest that had
    his men pinned down. You received three purple hearts for what appears to
    be three minor scratches. In fact you only missed a combined total of two
    days of duty for these wounds. The men of my father's unit, the 87th, had
    to be admonished by their commanding officer because: "It has been brought
    to our attention that some men are covering up wounds and refusing medical
    attention for fear of being evacuated and permanently separated from this
    organization..." It was also a common problem for seriously wounded
    soldiers to go AWOL from hospitals in order to rejoin their units. You
    used your three purple hearts to leave Vietnam early. My oldest boy came
    home from Iraq with numerous
    commendations and then proceeded to volunteer to go to Afghanistan and
    from there back to Iraq again. My sons and father have never had anything
    but the highest regard and respect for their fellow soldiers. Yet, you came
    home to publicly charge your fellow fighting men with being war criminals
    and to urge their defeat by the enemy. You even wrote a book that had a
    cover which mocked the heroism of the U.S. Marines who raised the flag on
    Iwo Jima.
    Our current crop of soldiers has a philosophy that no one gets left
    behind; and they have practiced that from Somalia to the battlefields of
    the Middle East. Yet as chairman of a Senate committee looking into
    allegations that many of your fellow servicemen had been left
    behind as prisoners in Vietnam, you chose to defend the brutal Vietnamese
    regime. You even went so far as to refer to the families of the POWs and
    MIAs as Professional malcontents, conspiracy mongers, con artists, and
    dime-store Rambos.
    As a Senator you voted against the 1991 Gulf War, and have repeatedly
    voted against funds to supply our troops with the best equipment, and
    against money to improve our intelligence capability. I find this
    particularly ironic since as a Presidential candidate you are highly
    critical of our pre-war intelligence in Iraq. However, you did vote to
    authorize the President to go to war, but have since proceeded to do
    everything you can to undermine the efforts of our government and our
    troops to win. Is this what our fighting men and women can expect of you
    if you are their Commander in Chief? Will you gladly send them to war,
    only to then aid the enemy by undermining the morale of our troops and
    cutting off the weapons they need to win?
    Our country is at war Senator, and as has been the case in every
    war since the American Revolution, a member of my family is serving their
    country during the war. Now you want me to trust you to lead my sons in
    this fight. Sorry Senator, but when I compare your record to those who
    have fought and died for this nation, and are currently fighting and
    dying, the answer is not just no, but Hell No!

    I think those two sentences say all that needs to be said about Kerry's Vietnam-era "leadership".
