This document shows that Bush had no service between 26 May, '72 and 1 Oct,
73.


So what. A lot of people did that. Some even got paid by the AF to do that,
wore civilian clothes, and did not attend drills or formation. Still do today.

Didn't the 102 have the downward firing ejection seat that
made low-level ejections, er, problematic?


No, it did not. I believe you're thinking of the early F-104.

Who did you support for president in 1992? 1996?

Art's ability to see that Bush is a complete disaster is a credit to him.


Art should bow to Texas, as the President has signed every welfare bill
put before him.

I guess that would earn him a free cup of coffee, but then he told
Congress that he was a war criminal, so maybe we should hold back
on that coffee for a bit.

Ask yourself this question: how would you feel if your crew got to
go home after 3 months overseas, and you had to stay for duration
plus six months? Would you say "they went to war" as excited as
you are about JFKerry?

Always wondered about that early departure. Can anyone explain?

Anyone wounded three times could opt out.

It occurs to me that this is what the protagonist in "Platoon" does also.
