Kerry tried to delay his Vietnam tour

Kerry tried to delay his Vietnam tour
: A report in the Telegraph, via the Harvard Crimson, says John Kerry tried to delay his tour of duty in Vietnam.

And who the hell could blame him?

Senator John Kerry, the presumed Democratic presidential candidate who is trading on his Vietnam war record to campaign against President George W Bush, tried to defer his military service for a year, according to a newly rediscovered article in a Harvard University newspaper.

He wrote to his local recruitment board seeking permission to spend a further 12 months studying in Paris, after completing his degree course at Yale University in the mid-1960s.

Hmmm. Paris/Vietnam, Paris/Vietnam…

Seems like he passed that sanity test.

I hope we put an end to Vietnam history with both Bush and Kerry and get on with the war that matters, the one against terrorism.
