One for Vietnam Vets
Kerry wins big in Maine caucus and questions Bush’s Vietnam Service.
Mr. Kerry took the opportunity to highlight his background as a decorated Vietnam veteran and questioned whether President Bush had fulfilled his Vietnam-era commitment to the National Guard. Mr. Kerry insisted that he was not making a political issue of Mr. Bush’s Vietnam-era service, saying he had no trouble with the “many people” such as Mr. Bush who served in the Guard to reduce the odds of seeing combat in Vietnam.True, Bush didn’t serve in Vietnam but then he didn’t serve for both sides either.
