From the mailbox

I've gotten email from a number of people pointing out some interesting Chuck Hagel related items.

From "bk" via Nathan there is this:
A video called Echoes of War, which can be yours for about $10.
It is impossible to completely understand what war is like unless you’ve been there. Nebraska U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel and his brother Tom understand because they fought together in America’s most controversial conflict, the war in Vietnam. The Hagels fought in the same platoon in the same battles. They fought together through rice paddies and rivers. And they were wounded together, twice, in ambushes. And they survived together. In August of 1999, the Hagel brothers returned to Vietnam. “Echoes of War” is the story of their journey, their experience during the war, and their reflections on the meaning and worth of the war in Vietnam.

Ben sent me this article: "Chuck Hagel is hot - John McCain is not." Perhaps this will be yet another way that Hagel emerges from the shadow of McCain with regard to the electorate.

Thanks for the emails!
