Video-Veterans Against John McCain? There will be many.
I was contacted a week ago by a group of local Vietnam veterans. I was familiar with three of these men and pretty good friends with one of them. We met at Mosby's for drinks and conversation.
These men are all active in pro military activities. We started talking about the Presidential race this year and how disappointed we all were that Duncan Hunter never gained the support we felt he deserved. We toasted to Duncan and ordered another round. I said "I guess y'all will support John McCain now." That was the wrong thing to say. I had assumed McCain would have their support since the media touts that he receives the veterans support in exit polls. In fact Fox News said that very thing tonight concerning Wisconsin. I found out quickly that these guys hated McCain and I do mean HATE. They said he screwed the POW/MIA's in Vietnam. Time was short and we toasted the Gray Ghost and went our separate ways.
I have been looking into what these vets told me and I have found this troubling. At first I figured this was like the swift boat vets that slammed John Kerry but this is way bigger. With what little I have read about this it is no wonder these guys hated McCain. I even called every older veteran in my family and asked about McCain. They all hate him. WoW. So if you know any Vietnam vets please ask them about this and feel free to email me with your findings. Now before my GOP friends jump down my throat , I will not vote for Hillary or Obama. NO WAY. But McCain has some explaining to do if he wants my support. This video scratches the surface and will make those of you who are involved with Vietnam POW/MIA causes to research for the truth.
