Well, there's always plastic surgery, but not any record of him doing
so. The story so far as vets like myself are concerned is that his CO
told him to volunteer for the trip home so as to cease putting his men
at excessive risk. Now, you could say Kerry was seeking combat and
glory intentionally for his political future, which is actually looked
down upon in military circles.
