One of the key elements of the smear job against the teenaged boys from Covington Catholic High School, falsely accused of racism by our esteemed news media, is the purported fact that the “victim,” Native man Nathan Phillips, is a Vietnam Veteran.
But many are now questioning Phillips’ claim, which was touted in a CNN sob story.
“And I’m a Vietnam veteran and I know that mentality of ‘There’s enough of us. We can do this,’” Phillips told CNN.
Some, including former Army Special Forces serviceman Jim Hanson, say that Phillips’ age proves that he could not have seen combat in Vietnam. READ MORE:

But the math on his service seems off. He is 64 now so 17 when USMC combat units left Vietnam
How could he have done training & served before that?
