Kerry's Military record
Unlike McCain, Bush, and Gore, Kerry has adamantly refused to authorize
the release of his military records. Most think it's because of his
phony battle medals. I think the real reason is below. He was not
granted an Honorable Discharge until March 2001, almost 30 years after
his ostensible service term had ended! This is very much out of the
ordinary, and highly suspect.
There are 5 classes of Discharge: Honorable, General, Other Than
Honorable, Bad Conduct, and Dishonorable. My guess is that he was
Discharged in the '70s, but not Honorably. He appealed this sometime
while Clinton was doing trouser-tricks in the Oval Office. Political
pressure was applied, and the Honorable Discharge was then granted.
His file is probably rife with reports of this, submissions and hearings
on the appeal, reports of his "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy,
along with protests that were filed with respect to his alleged valor
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 -
On 16 February 1978 Lt. John Kerry was discharged from US Naval
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
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
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."
'rats are made of teflon. Not a chance in hell of making that stick.
Agree though, and thanks.
