A long time ago, John Kerry told the world we were war criminals who raped, tortured and murdered in Vietnam. America
listened, and we have carried the stain of Kerry's untrue and dishonorable statements for all these years. Now, thirty-three
years later, in a rally in Washington DC on Sept 12, we will tell America the truth.
The rally will be a peaceful
remembrance of those with whom we served in
Vietnam - those who lived and those who died. We will tell the story
their virtues and how that contrasts with the lies told by John Kerry.
Please note this is not a pro-Bush rally,
and Democrats, Republicans and
Independents are welcome and warmly invited. All Vietnam veterans and their families
and supporters are asked to attend. Other veterans are invited as honored guests.
Attached is the initial announcement
from our new organization - Vietnam
Vets for the Truth, LLC. Please spread the word to your Vietnam vet
and plan to join us in Washington in September. Please let me know

John Kerry told the world we were war criminals who raped, tortured and murdered in Vietnam. Now, thirty-three
years later, we will tell America the truth. Join us at the rally we call:
"Kerry Lied . . . While Good Men Died"
What: A peaceful remembrance of those with whom we
served in Vietnam - those who lived and those who died.
We will tell the story of their virtues and how that contrasts
with the lies told by John Kerry.
When: Sunday, Sept. 12, 2004 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
Where: The West Front of the U.S. Capitol Building, Washington,
All Vietnam veterans and their families and supporters are asked to attend. Others are welcome.
This will be a peaceful event--no shouting or contact with others with different opinions. We fought for their
rights then, and we respect those rights now. This is NOT a Republican or a pro-Bush rally. Democrats, Republicans, and independents
alike are warmly invited. Our gathering is to remember those with whom we served, thereby giving the lie to John Kerry's smear
against a generation of fine young men now growing old.
B.G. "Jug" Burkett, author of "Stolen Valor," will be one of our speakers. Jug has debunked countless impostors
who falsely claimed to be Vietnam veterans or who falsely claimed awards for heroism. Jug recommends that we refrain from
dragging fatigues out of mothballs. Dress like America--like you do every day. Dress code: business casual--nice
slacks and shirt and shoes. No uniform remnants, please. Unit hats are OK.
Selected members will wear badges identifying them as authorized to speak to the media about our event. Others
who speak to the media will speak only for themselves.
The program will be controlled in an attempt to stay on-message. Speakers are encouraged not to engage in speculative
criticism of John Kerry but (1) to stick to known and undisputed facts about John Kerry’s lies while (2) reminding America
of the true honor and courage of our brothers who battled America’s enemies in Vietnam.
Send this announcement to as many of our brothers and sisters as possible!
Bring them by car, bus, train or plane! Make this event one of pride in America, an event you would
be proud to have your mother, children or grandchildren attend.

49, Mt. Vernon, VA 22121. Or use the PayPal "Make a Donation" button on the website. If you can’t
