Poor Egotisical Val Kilmer

OK....I'm going to be as nice as I possibly can about this.

I came from an educated family. I decided to join the military after I graduated from high school to serve my country and then after my four-year enlistment, go to college.

I joined the U.S. Marine Corps and after recruit training at Parris Island, reported to an infantry outfit. During my four years, I served in combat in the Dominican Republic revolution of 1965 and in Vietnam 1965-66. I have witnessed close buddies dying in battle and have had the enemy in the sights of my M-14 more than I care to talk about.

My father was a high school football coach and teacher. I was a good athlete and student. I was not a punk, I was not beaten up by my father and I more than made the football team.

I WANTED to serve this country that I love so much! Today I am 100% service-connected (permanent and total) disabled through VA.
I served this wonderful country of ours and would do the same thing tomorrow if given the chance.

What have you,Val Kilmer, done for your country other than enjoy the freedoms that others have paid with blood. So you think YOU have the 'emotional equipment'?

I have seen young men give up their lives for that young Marine(s)beside him. I have looked into the eyes of a young Marine dying and couldn't do a DAMN thing to save his life.

Well, I guess I just didn't have the 'emotional equipment' to reach out and save him like you would do in the make-believe world of Hollywood.

I guess I was just a 'poor, wretched punk kid' who lived the horror of Vietnam, but my mind was not prepared for it like the great Val Kilmer...why, he's prepared for it because some hollywood producer showed him how to pretend!

Mr. Kilmer, grow a set and go up to an IN-COUNTRY Vietnam Vet and say that to his face. Show us how big and bad you are!

You have spit on not only Vietnam vets, but you have spit on all those who have their names carved on that big, black granite Wall in Washington, D.C. You are a disgrace and traitor along with the likes of 'Hanoi Jane'.

I have always enjoyed your movies, but never again! I will personally make sure that Thousands of Vietnam Vets see and read what you said. I will NEVER EVER watch your disgusting face or pay to watch you ever again. You sicken me to the point of throwing up.

You need to stay in that doughboy make-believe world of yours because you couldn't handle the truth or the real world. People like you are flushed down the toilet every day. Now that's as nice as I could say it.
