SHAME ON JOHN KERRY
Speaking as Chair of the Alaska House Special Committee on Military and Veterans, as well as a veteran, I’m sad to report what Senator John Kerry said today in California. From the lips of the man who, except for a few votes, could have been the Commander-in-Chief of our nation’s military came the disturbing words, “You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.” Outrageous!
Mr. Kerry, I bring you news. Our military men and women have done well, and are doing well, and are just as smart as anyone else – including some who serve in the United States Senate. Mr. Kerry, you have insulted every member of the armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, and every Vietnam Veteran, Korean Veteran, and every veteran of every other war (including my mother who served in the Women’s Army Corps – “WAC” - in the 15th Air Force in Italy during World War II). Shame.
