Van Taylor Releases Statement Condemning Senator Kerry's Shocking and Deplorable Comments
Calls on Chet Edwards to Condemn Kerry's Comments
WACO - - Van Taylor, candidate for U.S. Congress in Texas' 17th Congressional District and Iraq War Veteran who graduated from Harvard twice with honors, released the following statement today in response to Senator Kerry's shocking comments belittling our men and women in the military. Taylor is a 10-year Marine Corps veteran who earned the Navy Commendation metal with "V" for Valor while serving in Iraq.
"This is an outrage to every man and woman who has ever worn the uniform. To say that only the stupid and uneducated serve their country is an insult and untrue. I am proud to say that I not only did my homework, but I also earned two Harvard degrees, and I am just as proud to have volunteered to serve in Iraq."
"Chet Edwards may wish that Sen. Kerry was the Commander in Chief, but Chet Edwards should condemn his fellow Democrat's insult to our brave soldiers."
