Cliche? Not for Steve Gardner who volunteered for Vietnam and served for two years as a Swift Boat gunner and had the distinct pleasure of calling John Kerry commander for four months.

Gardner was the only vet on Kerry's boat who spoke out at length in the media about why John Kerry was unfit to be Commander-in-Chief. An example:
"I told him [Brinkley] that the guy in the book is not the same guy I served with. I told him Kerry was a coward. He would patrol the middle of the river. The canals were dangerous. He wouldn't go there unless he had another boat pushing him."
For that he was vilified by Kerry hagiographer Douglas Brinkley in Time magazine and threatened by Kerry's veterans organizer John Hurley. Subsequently Gardner was 'laid off' by his employer shortly after he was told he was doing exemplary work. Broke and married with three kids, Gardner says he would do it all over again.
