New York Times Vietnam story
On May 17, 2010, the New York Times published an article stating that Blumenthal "never served in Vietnam, despite statements to the contrary. The Times has found that he obtained at least five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took repeated steps that enabled him to avoid going to war." (On June 30, 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued Executive Order 11360, mandating that no deferments for post-graduate study be granted in the future, except for those men pursuing medical and dental courses.) The Times also published a March 2, 2008, video in which he states that "I served in Vietnam".
Richard Blumenthal served our country, but he lied about being in Vietnam . He also claimed to have been that captain of Harvard’s swim. He attended Harvard but he wasn’t the captain of the swim team.
