Dear John Kerry,
As a former Naval Officer you should be ashamed of yourself. You have done everything you can to discredit your country, your military, and your sense of honor for your own selfish political aspirations. You took an oath of your own free will and then have attempted to trash the dignity and honor of every person who has ever served their country except yourself. By your standards you are a hero but anyone else who serves is some sort of dummy.
I resent your allegations and so do a lot of other people both in and out of uniform. Some of the most educated and dedicated people I have ever know are part of OIF/OEF. At present I work with a group who hold degrees from varying institutions of higher learning such as USC, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, King's Collge London, West Point, Annapolis, Cornell, Oregon, and MIT. That's right John Kerry, MIT. I myself have a long track record and have even had continuing education at Harvard. Yep John that's right; Harvard. I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but I think that both MIT and Harvard are located in your home state of Massachusetts.
We are not dummies. We are bright, educated, experienced, and driven. We believe in our sense of honor, self worth, and duty. We don't look down on those with less education or denigrate their service, we applaud it. I have seen some very, very intelligent enlisted personnel who are here by choice because they wanted to give something back to their country before continuing on with their life.
Next time you decide to change the foot in your mouth try and do it when you are talking about some one other than people in uniform.
Someone stuck in Iraq
P.S. Happy Thanksgiving (I think that started in Massachusetts also)
