they were lovin' on jesus, i guessSo, the rest of this story aside, John Kerry has said that he was shot at, on December 25, 1968, "by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas."
I honestly have no idea, but this seems a little odd: how likely would Vietnamese soldiers have been to be celebrating Christmas? Is Vietnam a highly Christian nation? Tet is the Vietnamese New Year -- how many holidays do the Vietnamese celebrate on the American model? (If I go to Vietnam for Thanksgiving, will they make me a Tofurkey?)
I am counting on someone else to provide an answer in comments, saving me from having to do my own damn research.
