Cpl. Cory Leonard Palmer, USMC

found this elsewhere - here it is

Senator Kerry Nov. 1, 2006

Damn you. You are a bumbling idiot. My son, Cory, left the Computer Engineering Program at West Virginia University, a superlative educational institution to volunteer to serve in the United States Marine Corps. He made it to Recon in less than one year, completing over a dozen schools,finishing with top scores in every single one of them. Cory, along with every Recon Marine, was/is a brilliant young man. They all volunteered - there is no draft as there was when you were in the Armed Forces. Cory, along with 3 other Recon Marines, died as the result of an IED explosion in May, 2006. These men, along with their peers, are superior in intellect. How dare you dishonor them by your careless words? You are a stupid, self-absorbed, fool.

I am not speaking as a member of any political party - in fact; I support more democrats at this juncture than republicans. But I loathe the disdain you display for my son and those whose magnificent service was given for something they held so dear to their hearts - freedom. I pray that your political future is doomed. You are a detriment to every democrat with whom you associate. If in deed, your words were, as you say, intended as a joke, then you are heartless. My son's life is certainly more than a joke. He and these almost 3,000 young men and women who have died with him, are much more valued and loved than to be used as pawns in your own petty political pundits. You were not misunderstood. You were clearly heard and understood by us all. You were on national television. You are utterly disrespectful of our sons and of us, their families. I will work tirelessly to bring you down. You discredit every member of the Armed Forces. Not only are these troops more savvy than ever before in history, so are their commanding officers, many of whom have advanced educational degrees. You, John Kerry, are nothing but scum. Spare us from the further desecration of our troops and the superlative military minds that truly do serve our nation. Remove yourself from the limelight and step down from office, NOW.

VERY sincerely,

Mrs. Danna Swain Palmer, Proud Mom of Fallen Marine,

Cpl. Cory Leonard Palmer, USMC, Recon

May 10, 1984 - May 6 - 2006

Sounds like he wasted his life, why is it that so many capable young people die fighting a war that does not involve them or their country when such horrible people here live and do nothing but drag the country down.

What do you know of the value of life? What have you given in service to this country? What do you know about Cory? Sounds like a lot of emptiness to me. My son had PURPOSE. He believed in something bigger than himself. He was thankful for the freedoms we enjoy in this country. I'm guessing you sit in your ivory tower spewing platitudes while not issuing an ounce of human decency to the lives of those who have protected your freedoms through the ages.
Danna Palmer, MarineMom
