Captain Ed has the full response.
Note that the vets question the legitimacy of more than just one of Kerry’s Purple Hearts.
I still have a hard time understanding why so many people who served on nearby boats think Kerry is a cowardly liar, while [most of] the people on his own boat seem to disagree. Still, the allegations are difficult to simply ignore, though Democrats will no doubt try to do exactly that.
UPDATE: A commenter reminds me that one of the people from Kerry’s boat is a member of the Swift Boat Vets. I have edited the post with a bracketed phrase to make it more accurate. Still, the overwhelming majority of people on his boat stand with him (or at least don’t criticize him). I wonder why.
UPDATE x2: Another commenter clears up the mystery of why the men on Kerry’s boat might support him when other men serving with Kerry don’t.
