"[E]ach episode of the HBO series Band of Brothers . . . begins with a voiceover in which the narrator says of the World War II soldiers portrayed in the program: 'I was not a hero, but I was surrounded by heroes.' In contrast, what John Kerry is saying in essence about his 'band of brothers' is that 'in Vietnam, I was a hero, but I was surrounded by war criminals.'"
