Posted on 11/29/2007 8:54:37 AM PST by MindBender26
Am working on a write piece for newspaper on last night's stacked deck debate.
Does anyone have any FACTUAL information on military or civilian career of Brigadier General Kerr, last night's Clinton-planted questioner?
Need to know typical DD214 stuff: Time in service, commissioning source, assignments, any combat or combat area time, active duty service other than ACDUTRA, service schools completed (CGSS, War College, etc> decorations received, Branch, (Infantry, Armor, etc.) when he revealed sexual orientation, any outstanding service good or bad, civilian career, etc.
Understand promotion to BG may have been honorary on retirement from Guard, not federally recognized.
Any help appreciated.
Commanding General of the Turd Burgling Division
I’m not positive, but as a mamber of the military, he was loathed by Hillary.
Sucking up won’t help.
But theres more. According to Lt. Col. Bill Campenni (USAF, ret), one of President Bushs squadron mates in the Texas Air National Guard, there is no such thing as the California National Reserve of which Kerr claimed to be a former member.

In 1998 he won hot dog eating contest held at the White House.
notice that the other gay retiree in the NPR roundtable was a “rear admiral”....the joke possibilities abound...
In addition, if he was gay during all of those years of service, then he definitely, during his career, did not truthfully fill in his military applications before the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy. Before that, the military DID ask, and if he lied, he should face those consequences as well IMHO.
Pretty much all anyone really needs to know about the guy I think.
Do a google search - very interesting.
Dude, it's lunch time here....
I’m wondering if Kerr and Hunter have had run ins in the past. They are from the same part of the country and Hunter has a long history on the armed services committee.
Personally I think Hunter was the real target of the attack. The video question went to Hunter and when Kerr started speaking from the audience he went after Hunter again. Fortunately Hunter handled it very well as I would expect him to.
Here’s a resume he that was posted at the Military Equality Alliance website.
Seems he left active duty in 1960 and was a Reservist after that, retiring from the Reserves as a Colonel in 1986 and joining the CA Military Reserves (citizen soldiers) where he achieved the rank of Brig. Gen.
Here’s the Reserves website:
touche’! Well done...
If we can win this election in spite of the MSM, it will be a miracle.
Commander of the Special Feces.
He retired as a California Army National Guard colonel, said Campenni. It is common at Guard retirement ceremonies to give an honorary promotion to colonels to the STATE rank of Brigadier General [but] it has no meaning other than a fancy certificate for the wall and use of the title at local Guard functions.
Campenni said the rank of general is not federally recognized and the title can not be used or the rank worn outside the state.
Factually, he is a coward regardless of service. He chose to hide his “status” until he was safely retired and had nothing to lose in standing up for his beliefs. If he truly believed that being gay, in the military or in general, was okay he should have come forward earlier to fight for his position.
