Medal mess

Supporters of Senator Kerry have lately been defending the ambiguities surrounding his Purple Hearts and Silver and Bronze Star awards, by saying "at least he was over there and he deserves the medals for putting himself in the war zone." The problem with that is that he did get medals for being there. They are called the Vietnam Service Medals. One was awarded by the South Vietnamese government and the other by the US government. They were awarded to every US military person who served in Vietnam. The Silver and Bronze Star awards are for service beyond just getting shot at. Both of his are very suspect.
