WP: Records Counter a Critic of Kerry

It turns out that military records from fellow Navy Swift Boat skipper Larry Thurlow, who alleges that Kerry faced no enemy fire on 13 Mar 1969, actually “contain several references to ‘enemy small arms and automatic weapons fire’ directed at ‘all units’ of the five-boat flotilla. Thurlow won his own Bronze Star that day, and the citation praises him for providing assistance to a damaged Swift boat ‘despite enemy bullets flying about him.’” These members of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth are liars.
