While I salute his service, I will not fall as far as to say that I admire this guy or even "respect" him at all. Just because he served, he does not gain my respect. I served with many that I do not and did not respect. There are others I would kill for.

This is self serving, Kerry came over as an A$$hole in my VFW Post 90% Viet Nam Vets, me included, mostly Marines and Army, a few swabbies thrown in for balance.

Amen. There's far too much universal "respect" afforded to people just because they served. Respect their SERVICE? Yes. Respect HIM or anyone like him? No. I don't care what he did for a few years; I can't respect anyone who now stands for what he stands for.
You couldn't have said it better. John Kerry deserves NO respect whatsoever. While his service in vietnam does deserve a salute his post vietnam activities rank right in there with Hanoi Jane. I wouldn't say his connections with the Vietnam Veterans Against The War In Vietnam qualify him to be the Commander In Chief of all the military services. Using his military service to bolster his presidential campaign is a slap in the face to all vietnam vets. I, for one, don't buy into any of your crap. I guess my message to John Kerry is; Go wrap your arms around Jane Fonda and all those other vietnam veteran turncoats. You all deserve each other. The real Aamerican people deserve someone better.
