The New Soldier
The picture at right is the ORIGINAL cover of John Kerry’s book THE NEW SOLDIER. John Kerry’s friends, the so called Vietnam Veterans Against the War, were mocking this scene photographed during the Second World War. 6,825 American boys died to plant that flag on Iwo Jima.
In JOHN KERRY’s own words: “And so a New Soldier has returned to America, to a nation torn apart by the killing we were asked to do. But, unlike veterans of other wars and some of this one, the New Soldier does not accept the old myths. We will not quickly join those who march on Veteran’s Day waving small flags, calling to memory those thousands who died for the "greater glory of the United States.” “We will not readily join the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars….” “We will not uphold traditions which decorously memorialize that which was base and grim”
