and it struck me a picture is worth a thousand words (seems I heard that before)
Military people will understand this more because they are familiar with codes of conduct, an oath and upholding the highest standards.
This first picture is of Kerry slandering the Military before Congress in 1971. While it is bad enough he lied about alleged war crimes is there one veteran who can tell me if you were trying to impress Congress you would show up in a working green uniform with medals (not mil std) Would you not think he would wear dress blues and get a haircut. Not very sat for Navy officer.
This second picture speaks for itself. Fonda with Kerry at a anti war rally.
This alone should end the discussion of his nomination.
Some vet please tell me what your superior would do if you were seen like this in public in this situation and to top it off he has his hands in his pockets.
Whatever happened to an officer and a gentleman. Whatever happened to honor and pride, what happened to dignity of being a member of the military. This is why the military has standards, why would he even be considered to represent out nation.
