Summary:

Military records show that a U.S. Navy "Swift boat" commander who accused Senator John Kerry of lying about the events that led him to be awarded a Bronze Star in Viet Nam, was himself awarded a Bronze Star. His citation described events he claims did not happen. The Washington Post used FOIA to obtain portions of the military records of Larry Thurlow.
