At a recent speech, Joe Walsh ‘said his opponent, Iraq War veteran Tammy Duckworth, was not a “true” hero because she often makes reference to her military service on the campaign trail.
‘Duckworth lost both her legs after an RPG attack in Iraq brought down the Black Hawk helicopter she was piloting in 2004. Walsh never mentions his own military service on the campaign stump. He never had any.
‘ “My God, that’s all she talks about,” Walsh said of Duckworth’s military career . . .’
