File Request

FILE REQUEST….I’ve gotten several emails asking the same question about George Bush’s National Guard records: if we want to know what a complete file should look like, why not get a complete file from some other guardsman and compare it to Bush’s? Just for fun, you understand.

Ideally, we’d want the file from a Texas Air National Guard pilot who served from 1968-1974, but I imagine anything relatively close would at least be instructive. Do I have any readers who fit the profile and have a copy of their file? Or would be willing to submit a request and get it?
