John Kerry used those boys when he returned from Vietnam as a political tool. The anti-war movement of which he was not only a part, but a leader, caused untold damage and death to all the American soldiers who were still fighting proudly. I have heard the Viet Cong used the anti-war movement, speeches, excerpts, documents to get POWs to turn. They didn't and were tortured more, thanks to the likes of John Kerry. Not to mention the fact that his Vietnam service/activity is a door he opened so proudly, now he wants to know who left it open. Reap what you sow.
