Shame On Him

I posted a link to Mr. Ronald Griffin’s moving tribute to his son, Kyle in the previous thread. But, he truly deserves a thread of his own. You really must read it all.

It is in my mind the height of irony that John Kerry, a Yale graduate, would make two other Yale graduates the butt of his supposed joke. One we all knew as President Bush; the other is known mostly to those who have proudly served with and under him. On the day Kyle died, this gallant warrior was to take command of Kyle’s parent unit, the 519th Military Intelligence Battalion. Kyle was on his way to the ceremony when he and his buddies were killed. Here is a man who is the epitome of intellect, character and gallantry–an individual that Mr. Kerry does not believe exists.

John Kerry stands alone, to be judged by his words. He has given us the rare opportunity to look into the soul of a politician, and he has shown himself wanting, especially in view of the fact that he asked us to allow him the honor and privilege of leading our gallant military at a time of war. It is rare in life to be able to know the consequences of both sides of a decision. Mr. Kerry has clearly demonstrated what manner of president he would have been. Fortunately the American electorate denied him that high honor.

Mr. Griffin is the father of Spc. Kyle Andrew Griffin, a recipient of the Army Commendation Medal, Army Meritorious Service Medal and the Bronze Star, who was killed in a truck accident on a road between Mosul and Tikrit on May 30, 2003.

And, by all means, please view this touching presentation of Until Then. For Kyle.

A Pound of Kerry Flesh

Welcome to our guests from  Angel’s NYC Marathon Open Trackback. 


Dad passed away one month before 9/11. As much as I’ve missed him since, a part of me is glad that he didn’t witness that awful day. I think I know what he would have done. After a few reflective days, he would have gone down to the sporting goods store and begun stocking up on ammunition and survival supplies. Just like I did.

Mom gave me his old leather jacket, and his shotgun, earthly treasures with a value steeped in sentiment and respect.

I’m missing him now as I write, in a way that I haven’t felt for some time.

He joined the US Navy at age 16, toward the end of WW II. I asked him once how long he served. He winked and said, “Long enough. Duration plus six months.” He served, all the while homesick for his family in Edwards, Mississippi, and missing his mother’s cooking. It’s really not fair to call Edwards a town. There are only a few dozen residents in that sleepy little hamlet, a few miles from Vicksburg. He was the youngest son in a family of three girls and five boys. All of his brothers served, all in the Navy.

In the last few months of his life, I saw something in his eyes that I had never seen before. I saw for a moment, a look of fear in his eyes. And, it was only for just a moment. He called on me to help him do something that I had seen him do hundreds of times. Perhaps what I saw was born more out of his frustration than fear. Frustration from the physical limitations put on his body by advancing years. But I recall these things, and I think of my uncles who served in two wars, my cousins who served in Vietnam, and I know in my heart that I am not ready to let go and move on from the simmering anger that I feel regarding John Kerry’s most recent insult to the men and women who serve.

If you’re not old enough to remember the Winter Soldier hearings, then you’ve probably seen the videos… the handsome young man, the articulate patrician soldier, speaking of the grisly atrocities committed by our own. Those speeches launched his political career, supported by the often reported myth that he spoke to Congress under oath, subject to the penalties of perjury.

He was not under oath. Nor were any of the Winter Soldiers who gave “testimony.”

He was free to promote the slanderous lies of Winter Soldier and the entire V.V.A.W. with the full knowledge and support of the media. And, that is exactly what he did. Just as Sy Hersch is doing today: undermining, maligning, and slandering our men and women who serve, for the sole purpose of doing political damage to George Bush. Kerry disgusts me. Hersch disgusts me.

I’m mad as Hell, and I’m not about to let go and move on.

and a link to John E. Carey who continues to scoop the MSM with his reporting of an American citizen being held in Vietnam

and for a change, a link to the left. I thought it was a parody site at first. But, no, the author Bob Freedland is a true Kerry believer. :sigh: h/t GCP
