SELFLESS SERVICE

A battalion commander puts his finger on the nagging usch I've felt for Kerry:

I think the purple heart issue as it relates to Sen Kerrey [sic] speaks volumns about him as a leader. He was not a private, but a Lieutenant, a small unit leader. He was taught that as a leader his two critical tasks were; accomplish the mission, and welfare of his soldiers. No leader I know would ever dream of leaving their troops behind especially not on a technicality. 3 medals equals ticket home. A leader should represent Army values of duty, honor, and most importantly selfless service. His actions seem more selfish than selfless.

My husband won't even take R&R without the rest of his soldiers getting it; I can't help but feel contempt for someone who would go home and leave his brothers to fend for themselves.

More two cents on Kerry's leadership.

1 You know, even before now I knew I was voting for Bush given I think he is the correct leader for the times. Given all that we know now about John Kerry, I don't think I'd vote for him regardless of the times, or who he was running against. It's almost as if I've become an Anybody-But-Kerry person, except I'm voting for Bush, and have been for a long time. Kerry just seems dispicable.
