John "reporting for duty" Kerry once fought in Viet-Nam where he was a naval officer who was not liked by all his fellow officers and who was awarded two purple hearts which other veterans did not think he deserved. When he ran for president two years ago , his controversial military career became a major focus of the campaign.

He has referred to the military men in women in uniform as murderers, rapists, torturers and more. His latest insult is directed at the intelligence and education levels of those who enlist to serve their country:
