Bush's Real Record
Byron York does a good job of pulling together many of the facts about Bush's Air National Guard service that I've seen scattered around over the past few months (via Rush). After York layes out some facts about how much work (and flying) Bush actually did in the first few years of his serice, he gets to the period in question (questioned by the Left, anyway):
Then, in 1973, as Bush made plans to leave the Guard and go to Harvard Business School, he again started showing up frequently.So...what's the problem again?
In June and July of 1973, he accumulated 56 points, enough to meet the minimum requirement for the 1973-1974 year.
Then, at his request, he was given permission to go. Bush received an honorable discharge after serving five years, four months and five days of his original six-year commitment. By that time, however, he had accumulated enough points in each year to cover six years of service.
