Once again, Kerry is daodging, and the Globe is covering.
The complete set of records for Navy Officers discharged before 1994 are held at the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis. The Navy would have only a partial set in its files. The Globe claims only the Navy release, not the NPRC.
Also, one would need to see this Form 180 to see what records were not to be included, as there is a section in the form for those exclusions. The Globe is coy in not revealing the actual form 180 and the details on it.
Still to be explained are Kerry's wilderness years, 1970-72 and 1974-78, where there seems to be no paper trail of what he did or his points/credit earned. There is also a missing DD 214 which is probably the most important document for a serviceman's records.
Looks like the Globe took a lesson from the Dan Rather School of Obfuscation and Denial.
Here is another opinion on what Kerry released.
