HARTFORD - Democratic Senate candidate and state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is apologizing for the controversy over his military service record.

Blumenthal was under fire last week after the New York Times reported he repeatedly made misleading statements about having served in the Vietnam War when he was only in a reserve unit that had not been deployed.

Last week, Blumenthal claimed he had "misspoke" on several occasion about his record. In the e-mail to the Courant, Blumenthal went farther saying, "I have made mistakes and I am sorry. I truly regret offending anyone."
