I caught the replay of their press conference
last night on C-SPAN2.
Forget about Kerry, this group of guys,
most in their 50s, early 60s, demolished
me. Their pride in their service. Their loyalty.
And their anger at being accused of war
crimes and torture.
These were the guys from the old neighborhoods,
the guys who played softball and ran picnics and
joined the military. Humble, not the least bit glib,
and too long quiet.
They were just absolutely terrific. It’s a shame
that Kerry had to be the reason for them to step
forward. I just miss the hell out of the country
that these men represent. If I had $25 million to
spare I’d turn that press conference into a half-hour
program and run it in every media market in the
Loved those guys.
