Whether George Bush "served" in the Air National Guard or not,

He most certainly did. I looked at this as hard as I could, and I
concluded that his military service was longer than mine, more
dangerous than mine, and more useful to the country.

This link shows conclusively that Bush did not earn the requisite 50

points
for
a year's satisfactory service:

Irrelevant.


No it's not. The primary source (the document I linked to) cannot be

trumped
by secondary sources beholden to Bush or his benefactors.

Bush did not sucessfully complete his obligatory service.


The appropriate authority determined that he had had successfully and
honorably completed his term of service and awarded him an honorable
discharge.


According to one website, his DD-214 is missing.


He served in the TANG and was issued an NGB Form 22 according to the records
Bush has released (it was one of them included).
More than one Federal and State web site quote that an NGB Form 22: Report
of Separation and Record of Service is issued to a reservist when discharged
from the Army national Guard or Air National Guard.

End of story. Get over it.


You are evidently replying to someone whom I've kill-filed

It is not at all unusual for an individual to fall short in one year's
Guard training and to make it up the following year. That' seems to be
what Bush did in his last two years of service. The poster clearly
didn't bother to read www.warbirdforum.com/bushf102.htm which deals
with this matter, and indeed every year of Bush's service. Instead he
preferred to trot out his own url, as if it were something new. It's
for tricks like that that I put him in the crapper.

As for getting over it, I don't think we have much hope.Liars and
tricksters aren't interested in getting at the truth.

Agreed. Bush used family influence to get into and out of the guard.


Did he? I find no evidence of either, though I'm sure that to be the
son of a Congressman helped him along when it came to being accepted
(but not in leaving). That's not the same thing as "using" the
connection. Short of changing his name, or joining the New York Guard,
there was nothing he could have done about it.

I think influence played a part. On the other hand, learning to fly a
F-102 isn't the easiest thing in the world[1]. And F-102s were certainly
flying operational missions in SEA, and killed a few of their pilots -
not exactly a safe cushty desk job.

Did he bail early? Alleged, unproven, but even if he did so did lots of
other folks, with no worse consequences (yes, you had a 'further
commitment' - but no, the military wasn't hunting you down to fulfil it
and seemed to have been reducing force anyway). Didn't snag a college
deferment, either (which hasn't been a barrier to US office).


I become tired of hearing pocket ideologues of either shade rant about
how one candidate's uniformed service was perfectly exemplary while the
other's was a complete disgrace, and the noise and fury of the fanatics
means I'm wary even of more measured claims.


Not my problem anyway, just an outside perspective since the debate's
inflicted on me


[1] At least a knife-point of RAM relevance.

Where is Bush's certificate of Honorable Discharge?

He jumped a 500 person waiting list. There's no issue over whether Bush got
preferential treatment. The issue is that he did not fulfil his obligation.
He clearly did not.

No it's not. Follow this link:

http://users.cis.net/coldfeet/ANG22.gif

It shows 5 years, 4 months and 5 days service out of a six year commitment.

Where is his "Honorable Discharge"? That's a certificate suitable for framing.

This link to the document you cite clearly shows that Bush fulfiled only 5
years, 4 months and 5 days service out of a six year commitment.

The poor loser party has been beating this dead horse since May 2000
and has yet to produce a single shred of credible evidence to support
it.
