It also says that only one of the 18 quoted men actually served under him,
and that "The other men who served under Kerry's command continue to speak
positively of him" and "How well all of these men knew John Kerry is

thirty-five years ago and how they describe him today suggest that their
opinions are largely based upon political differences rather than
objective assessments of Kerry's military record."
