Kerry's Despicable Military Record

Thursday, 09 September 2004 12:00 AM

Since February I have been ranting that the veteran community would eventually, inevitably become the prime contributor to the destruction of the John Kerry campaign. For months, I have been the Lone Ranger and viewed as a moderately amusing gadfly.

In March, I wrote in

Smarter, more dedicated men than this writer have been beating the drum for MONTHS:

The overwhelming majority of veterans loathe John Kerry. The reasons vary. Some hate him for his treasonous conduct pimping for Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Some hate him for what they view as self-aggrandizing hyperbole. Some hate him for his arrogance, pretension and unlikeability.

The Kerry campaign made a monumental strategic ‘whoops’ when they chose to build the foundation for ‘Versailles de Kerry’ on his Vietnam experience.

Do-overs have become chronic … and it ain’t over yet.

Republicans will never criticize the “decorated war hero.” They are scared spitless of any linkage with the anti-Kerry veteran legions. However, thousands of decorated war heroes with significantly greater service, scars, experience and insights loathe and detest the pampered Brahmin prince.

But the excrement storm thus far is mere prologue. There IS more …

On Feb. 18, 1966, John Kerry signed a six-year enlistment contract with the Navy (plus a six-month extension during wartime). He also signed an Officer Candidate contract for six years – five years of ACTIVE duty & ACTIVE Naval Reserves, and one year of inactive standby reserves.

Since Kerry was discharged from TOTAL ACTIVE DUTY after only three years and 18 days, on Jan. 3, 1970, he was then required to attend 48 drills per year and not more than 17 days of active duty for training. Most significant, however, is that

That means as a commissioned officer Kerry was prohibited from making adverse statements against his chain of command or statements against his country,

Another one of those interesting ‘clerical errors’ is that Kerry did not obtain an honorable discharge until March 12, 2001, even though his service obligation should have ended July 1, 1972.

On Jan. 3, 1970, Lt. John Kerry was transferred to the Naval Reserve Manpower Center in Bainbridge, Md. Therefore, there should be Performance Records for two years of obligated Ready Reserve, the 48 drills per year required and his 17 days of active duty per year training while Kerry was in the Ready Reserves. Have these records been released?

Has anyone ever talked to Kerry's commanding officer at the Naval Reserve Center where Kerry drilled?

Kerry’s conduct as a Ready Reservist participating as a leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War was criminal, some veterans now argue:

Lt. Kerry, by his own words and actions, violated the UCMJ and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer. Failing a REAL good explanation, Lt. Kerry is in violation of Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution.

Lt. Kerry's 1970 meeting with NVA Communists in Paris is in direct violation of the UCMJ's Article 104 part 904, and U.S. Code 18 & U.S.C. 953. That meeting, and Kerry's subsequent support of the communists while leading mass protests against our military in the year that followed, also place him in direct violation of our Constitution's Article 3, Section 3, which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare.

The Constitution's 14th Amendment, Section 3, states, "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath ... to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

Senator Kerry, having established his ‘service’ as the foundation for his campaign, has some explaining to do. The only way to chill the barrage of questions is to sign off on a Standard Form (SF) 180 and let the media examine John Kerry’s FULL military record.
