DNCC to Highlight Kerry Navy Service

John Kerry's address will be preceded by remarks by his children and a few of the crewmates from his Navy swiftboat in Vietnam. He intends to make his Vietnam service a major issue in defining his campaign.

Kerry plans to cap the four-day gathering of more than 4,300 delegates with an acceptance speech outlining his vision to improve the nation's standing at home and abroad. But with many voters still unfamiliar with Kerry despite more than two years of campaigning, the convention also has been designed to help people get to know his biography, including his experience as prosecutor, lieutenant governor, senator and a decorated Naval officer in Vietnam.

I am pretty sure he will not be asking the vast majority of his fellow swiftboat officers, including a couple of Kerry's reviewing officers, to speak for him. They have entirely differnt things to say about John Kerry.

God Bless America.
