But something ain't right here, he claims to be a Korean War vet, he's 75, he was born in 1940? the Korean War ended in 1953, so, he was 13 when he served???


Veteran Says He Regrets Shoving Female Protester at Trump Rally | Military.com
You really need to learn to read your own sources. He claimed to be 'a member of the Korean War Veterans Association.' he did NOT claim to be a Korean War veteran.

One need not be a Veteran of the Korean War to be a member of that association.

I swear, I would be amazed if you EVER started a thread without a lie in the title or the OP.

No it isn't,,, the opening paragraph:

The Army veteran seen shoving a young black woman during a Donald Trump rally last week in Louisville, Kentucky, says he was not motivated by racism but overreacted after being pushed to the floor during the chaos.

THREAD TITLE: Korean War (ahem) Vet says he regrets shoving protester at Trump rally

YOUR Source: The Army veteran seen...

You DO understand their is a difference between claiming to be an ARMY VETERAN, like your source says....and YOU claiming he said he was a KOREAN WAR VETERAN, which your source shows he NEVER said.

You.... lied.

Nope, I posted the opening statement in the article to you above...
Yes. You posted the opening statement, which says simply ARMY VETERAN.

NOWHERE in your linked piece does it say he claimed to be a KOREAN WAR VETERAN.

I already explained the difference to you. ANYONE on this board who was on the military, and most wh were note, will agree there is a difference between the words ARMY VETERAN, and KOREAN WAR VETERAN.

you appear to lack the cognitive ability to see the difference.
