    Thanks for the B-day card, Mom and Dad, it was a real nice card. David, did
    you get the e-card I sent?
    The difference between the NFL football player who just died in Afghanistan
    and Kerry;
    The star football player turned down millions of dollars, power and fame to
    enlist in the Army, an opportunity to serve his country which he died for.
    Kerry, OTOH, turned down serving and possibly dying for his country for an
    opportunity for lots of money, power, and fame.
    The Football player is/was a hero.
    Kerry is not.
    Kerry threw his medals away in '71he said. Now he seems to 'want them back',
    for all to see. He also now admits he only threw the ribbons away, not the
    medals. Real committed to a cause, huh? Poser.
    The football player will never get the chance to do that, and wouldn't, he
    was  authentic in his beliefs.
    I also did not like the VC war. If it had gone on much longer, I might well
    have ended up there. I sure hope I would have had the guts to do the right
    thing...and not for medals! Kerry had THREE Purple Hearts...he PUT HIMSELF
    in for them...I am very familiar with that game in the military, self
    promotion, the folks who do it are NEVER what they consider themselves to
    So, we should have a hypocritical poser in the White House? The Dems sure
    know how to pick 'em, don't they?-Ken
