John Kerry Testifies

1971

Senator J. William Fulbright, D-Arkansas (back to the camera), chariman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee faces a jammed committee room as his group takes testimony (22th April 1971) from John Kerry, one of the leaders of a week-long anti-war demonstration being conducted by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Kerry, a three-time decorated former Navy Lt./jg and later Senator (D-MA) made a moving plea to end the war, asking every American to consider who would be the last chosen “to die for a mistake.” Many of Kerry’s Vietnam veteran comrades are behind him listening to his plea.
