Senate floor against draft-dodging accusations leveled by a Democratic rival,
Sen. Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, himself a Vietnam veteran.

"I gave back, I can't remember, six, seven, eight, nine medals," Kerry said in an interview on a Washington, D.C., news program on WRC-TV called Viewpoints on Nov. 6, 1971, according to a tape obtained by ABC NEWS.

Vice President Dick Cheney. Kerry says, "Vice President Cheney has the same
position I do." In an exclusive interview published by the Denver Post on
