Anti-Kerry Filmmaker Carlton Sherwood Dies

Thursday, 19 Jun 2014 05:30 PM

 

A Vietnam War veteran and former journalist who produced a film attacking Democrat John Kerry during his failed 2004 presidential campaign has died. Carlton Sherwood was 67.

Sherwood's wife, Susan, said Thursday that he died June 11 of heart failure at University of Pennsylvania Hospital. He lived in the central Pennsylvania town of Dillsburg.

Sherwood was part of a Gannett News Service reporting team that won a Pulitzer Prize for public service in 1980.

His 2004 film "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal" alleged that Kerry's actions as an anti-war activist after he returned home from Vietnam harmed American prisoners of war. Attacks on Kerry's own military record were viewed as a factor in his election loss.

Sherwood's family says he will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
