    Why do you need his records?

    Do you think he has something to hide?

    They are property of the Armed Forces and subject to their release approval.

    That said The Records center on Goodfellow Blvd in St Louis that houses all records had a severe fire in the 70's and a vast amount of paper was burned.

    Many Vietnam vets lost all or part or their records.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Kerry's record. The Skull&Bones have a tradition of joining the Navy (Bush was a rogue)

    Is it impossible to live in the present and not beat the past to death to direct attention anywhere but toward Bush's incompetence? Okay, I'll play. Probably for the same reason that Bush kept his DUI secret while he was Governor of Texas. Also, probably for the same reason that Bush will do just about anything not to discuss his "non" service to his country during Vietnam, the special privileges he received while "serving" and the special dispensation he received to leave "service" early. He doesn't seem to want to discuss shoving coke up his nose either does he? The first President with a criminal record, it just makes me so damn proud.

    Kerry fought in Vietnam and won purple hearts. At least he was in Vietnam unlike Bush who somehow managed to be picked for National Guard.

    Why doesn't Bush make ANYTHING his administration has ever done public knowledge. As the public we have a right to know. The truth that is. Not the overly spun white washed version.

    You are not a Public Official. And your interest is not scholarly but tendentious. Flake off.
