Kerry and Vietnam

Some believe John Kerry betrayed our troops in Vietnam by protesting after the war. Kerry received a Silver Star, Bronze Star with Combat V, and three Purple Hearts. Few would know more about Vietnam than Kerry. If it were not for war heroes like Kerry speaking out for what they believe in, and millions of others protesting and spreading their concern about the war in Vietnam, perhaps 58,000 dead Americans would have been 158,000 before our government came to its senses. Senator Kerry, you’ve got my vote. Let’s wage peace!
