Sincere thanks to Chosin Few member Hector Cafferata, MOH, F/2/7 for forwarding the enlightening communication which follows.
If anyone still believes John Kerry is an honorable Navy Veteran, the following should remove any remaining doubt.
Thank God he did not attempt to enlist in our beloved Marine Corps.

Even I'm getting tired of learning all of the rotten stuff about Kerry but it's best that we know. I pray that many Kerry supporters are beginning to understand why he would not serve the nation well.
John Kerry does not want his service record questioned. This is the reason why.
Subject: Hanoi John's Military Service On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry signed a 6 year enlistment contract with the Navy (plus a 6-month extension during wartime).
On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry also signed an Officer Candidate contract for 6 years -- 5 years of ACTIVE duty & ACTIVE Naval Reserves, and 1 year of inactive standby reserves (See items #4 & $5).
Because John Kerry was discharged from TOTAL ACTIVE DUTY of only 3 years and 18 days on 3 Jan. 1970, he was then required to attend 48 drills per year, and not more than 17 days active duty for training. Kerry was also subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Additionally, Kerry, as a commissioned officer, was prohibited from making adverse statements against his chain of command or statements against his country, especially during time of war. It is also interesting to note that Kerry did not obtain an honorable discharge until Mar. 12, 2001 even though his service obligation should have ended July 1, 1972.
Lt. John Kerry's letter of 21 Nov. 1969 asking for an early release from active US Navy duty falsely states "My current regular period of obligated service would be completed in December of this year."
On Jan. 3, 1970 Lt. John Kerry was transferred to the Naval Reserve Manpower Center in Bainridge, Maryland.
Where are Kerry's Performance Records for 2 years of obligated Ready Reserve, the 48 drills per year required and his 17 days of active duty per year training while Kerry was in the Ready Reserves? Have these records been released?
Has anyone ever talked to Kerry's Commanding Officer at the Naval Reserve Center where Kerry drilled?
On 1 July 1972 Lt. John Kerry was transferred to Standby Reserve - Inactive . On 16 February 1978 Lt. John Kerry was discharged from US Naval Reserve.
Below are some of the crimes Lt. Kerry USNR committed as a Ready Reservist, while he was acting as a leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War:
1. Lt. Kerry attended many rallies where the Vietcong flag was displayed while our flag was desecrated, defiled, and mocked, thereby giving aid and comfort to the enemy. 2. Lt. Kerry was involved in a meeting that voted on assassinating members of the US Senate. 3. Lt. Kerry lied under oath against fellow soldiers before the US Senate about crimes committed in Vietnam. 4. Lt. Kerry professed to being a war criminal on national television, and condemned the military and the USA. 5. Lt. Kerry met with NVA and Vietcong communist leaders in Paris, in direct violation of the UCMJ and the U.S. Constitution.
Lt. Kerry by his own words & actions violated the UCMJ and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer. Lt. Kerry stands in violation of Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution. Lt. Kerry's 1970 meeting with NVA Communists in Paris is in direct violation of the UCMJ's Article 104 part 904, and U.S. Code 18 U.S.C. 953. That meeting, and Kerry's subsequent support of the communists while leading mass protests against our military in the year that followed, also place him in direct violation of our Constitution's Article 3, Section 3, which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare.
The Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, states, "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President .. having previously taken an oath . to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

BTTT! Time to release those records like President Bush, John boy!
I always have appreciated a bit of sarcasm.
Still, at this level, Kerry's actions have been consistently appalling.
Bye Bye Kerry ~ Bump!
While a senior at Yale, Kerry asked his draft board for permission to study a year in Paris, which the draft board declined. A Slate article reported that Kerry wrote in a 1986 book,Maybe he wasn't so enthusiastic?
"[The Swift Boats] were engaged in coastal patrolling and that's what I thought I was going to be doing. Although I wanted to see for myself what was going on, I didn't really want to get involved in the war." --John Kerry timeline
All that is needed is to show what Kerry was doing when, and how it relates to 'treason' and Constitutional law.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Who decides Kerry gave aid and comfort? A court?
Does this explain the 1978 discharge?
1966 + 6 years active + 5 years BNaval reserve + 1 year inactive reserve = 1978
Not so fast. Bush has not signed an SF 180 either. He is releasing his own records just like Kerry.
Kerry was transferred into the Standby Inactive Reserve on July 1, 1972. A Navy board then decides when to drop officers from the reserves. They decided to separate Kerry from the Reserves per BUPERSMAN 3830.360 on Feb 16, 1972 and give him an honorable discharge.
Something similar happened to me. As a naval officer with a regular commission, I resigned from the Navy in 1972. I didn't receive my honorable discharge until Feb 16, 1978. I must have been before the same board as Kerry.
BUMP and BTTT
Welcome to Free Republic!
AS TO KERRY'S 'SERVICE', I am reminded of...
At one time in my life, I thought I understood the meaning of the word "service." The act of doing things for other people.
...But then I heard the terms:
Internal Revenue Service
City/County Public Service
...And I became really confused about the word "service." This is not what I thought "service" meant.
Then one day, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them mentioned that he was having a bull service a few of his cows. WHAM!! It all came into perspective!
Now I understand what all those "service" agencies are doing to us.
When does a Democrat consider treason to be serious?

Pinging post #30!!
I really haven't studied it yet.
The leftists can't win unless they can silence their opposition. Our job is to keep that from happening...
