"It turned John Kerry's legitimately heroic war exploits into grandstanding fraud."

It has been strongly suggested that Kerry volunteered, not for the active Navy but for the Naval Reserve. Perfectly honorable, just as the Air National Guard was - but hardly stuff of heroic legend. Why can that be credibly alleged? Simply because we do not have access to any official record to the contrary. In response to questions, former TANG Lieutenant George W. Bush signed a Form 180 authorizing the public release of all of his military records.
Having made military service ("Lieutenant Kerry reporting for duty") at the DNC convention, Senator Kerry refused to sign a Form 180 at all until long after the '04 election - and stipulated that only some of it be released, and released only to a friendly news organization.
